Career Prospects

Anna Malysheva, former student of the Master in International Relations"I was amazed not only by the excellent quality of the courses, but also by the rich experience that studying in the multicultural group has given to me. The course program is complete: incredibly broad as well as detailed and in the same time comprehensible. The professors are experts in their fields, have a contagious passion for what they do, and are highly dedicated to their students. The interactions with the students who had come from different cities and who have specialized in different fields give an opportunity to feel how the international relations works in situ. In addition, after finishing the course I feel very lucky to make internship in the first Spanish think tank".
