Today’s globalised international society is increasingly complex, dynamic and interdependent. In addition to states, there are many other international actors, including international organisations, sub-state organisations, NGOs and multinational corporations, amongst others. All of these organisations require highly qualified, multilingual staff with a strong background in international policy and action and excellent negotiation, communication and leadership skills. 


The Master’s programme in Diplomacy and International Organizations aims to produce professionals able to excel as diplomats, officials of the European Union and other international organisations, experts and advisors at organisations with international operations (NGOs, consulting firms, etc.), international project managers at government agencies, etc. 

This preparation is rounded out with a compulsory internship at an embassy, consulate, permanent missions, international organisation, company or other organization.


The Master's programme in Diplomacy and International Organizations is an official title from the 2019-2020 academic year, taught by the CEI International Affairs, Affliated Center to the University of Barcelona. The main advantages of an official Master is that it has an international recognition, it gives access to the Doctorate in the Spanish Education System and also to the Ministry of Education General Scholarships
