By undertaking our accelerated one-semester-immersion short course, you will gain first-hand exposure into the world of diplomacy and international relations.

Whether your background or interest lies in the private, public or the non-profit sector, GSD would like to encourage a fulfilling and useful experience that will enhance knowledge and boost a lasting career.
We will provide opportunities to gain reputable contacts, experience and resources in the field of International Relations and Diplomacy through the promotion of the different international events in the area and, of course, our distinguished faculty.
