Multilateral Diplomacy Programme

The Master in Multilateral Diplomacy is jointly organized by the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).

The programme’s study plan consists of a block of compulsory and elective courses, allowing each student to form an individual schedule, corresponding to his professional interests and personal inclinations.

The basic disciplines that form the programme are megatrends and global problems, historical background of Russia's foreign policy, analysis of international situations, global governance and international institutions, global security and contemporary international conflicts; modern network diplomacy and practical modules with invited UNITAR experts on the UN system, conference diplomacy, UN protocol and etiquette etc.

During the final semester of the programme, students will have an opportunity to conduct an on-the-job training in one of UNITAR's international partner organizations.

Finally, graduates of the Multilateral Diplomacy programme will have a high level of proficiency in foreign languages, professional knowledge in the field of international relations, diplomacy and negotiation process, as well as skills in intercultural and business communication.
