What is the Official Master's Degree in International Affairs: Economics, Politics and Law?

The Official Master's Degree in International Affairs: Economics, Politics and Law offers a multidisciplinary approach that favors the study and analysis of international affairs in a rigorous and innovative way, in line with the excellence and vanguard that characterize the education offered by Comillas Pontifical University. Studying our Master in International Affairs allows students to acquire a wide range of tools with which to address global challenges and the complexity of international reality from an economic, legal and political perspective.

This official Master's program provides a transversal and advanced training in international affairs, which is structured around a module of common subjects and an itinerary of in-depth study, either of a legal-political or economic-business nature. The program is completed with an academic stay at Georgetown University (Washington, USA), where students will receive classes from prestigious academics and professionals with extensive experience in international relations, foreign policy and international economics. The stay also includes institutional visits to governmental entities and international organizations based in Washington. The academic experience of the Master's program is also enhanced by attending lectures, courses and seminars, including the series of meetings with diplomats and the sessions of the University's Latin America Chair.

During the Master's program, students will carry out internships in public institutions, international companies and organizations related to international relations, thus initiating a successful professional career in both the private and public sectors, thanks to the polyvalent profile provided by their training.

The Master in International Affairs is organized by the two faculties that make up ICADE, the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and the Faculty of Law of Comillas Pontifical University, chosen by the U.S. newspaper Financial Times, in November 2016, as one of the 91 best Graduate Law Schools in the world.
