These principles will help you not only develop the critical thinking skills needed in order to analyze conflicts between states but also the human relations skills needed to proactively avoid them.

Diplomacy, in its purest form, is not the art of prevailing over one’s rivals to make change, but the perfection of communication skills to build understanding and harmony in the world as it is. The creation of a more harmonious world depends on the individual: his level of responsibility, his creativity, his ideas and his vision.


Upon successful completion of the International Relations course from European School of Economics  participants may opt to take a 3-month internship fitted to their profile and career objectives. Students will undergo an assessment with the ESE Placement Officer, so as to determine their eligibility for an internship placement*. The placement office will assist eligible students in obtaining an internship fitting their profile and career objectives.
