The IE School of Arts and Humanities held the Inauguration Ceremony of the Master in International Relations 2012, which celebrates its 5th intake of a truly international program. The program brings together students from 4 continents, with over 65% of its students coming from abroad, who represent 13 countries: United States, Canada, India, Turkey, Spain, Mexico, China, Kazakhstan, Bolivia, Italy, Dominican Republic, Finland and Russia.
This years’ Master in International Relations intake comprises a talented, diverse and ambitious group of students capable of bringing a rich diversity of perspectives to the learning process and leaving their mark on this dynamic and innovative program. The program consists of graduates from diverse fields, such as Political Science, Humanities, Law, Economics, Business, Communication and Journalism, who have a clear interest in international relations, both within the public and the private sectors, and who aim to follow careers in areas such as government, NGO’s, international consulting and multinational companies.
The Master in International Relations is an intensive and rigorous 10-month program which is wholly dedicated to preparing professionals with the relevant knowledge and skills necessary to work effectively within an increasingly complex and interconnected world, and opens pathways to international careers in both the public and private sectors.
IE School of Art and Humanities  benefits from IE Business School´s  expertise, which receives international recognition and is ranked among the top 10 business schools in the world, according to international journals such as Financial Times, The Economist, BusinessWeek and The Wall Street Journal.
The program has successfully served as the spearhead of IE’s international projection, which responds to our firm belief that global awareness is vital to the success of today’s projects in both public and private sectors. It is not by mere chance that some 40.000 of our alumni are working on 5 continents, and that more than 90 nationalities are represented among our student body and faculty.
The program is offered at IE’s Madrid campus, situated in the heart of the city’s modern business district where students benefit from a global atmosphere, unmatched networking opportunities, as well as everything the city has to offer, including learning Spanish, the native language of 500 million people worldwide and the world’s second business language.
