With a curriculum that covers everything from big data and cybersecurity to digital diplomacy and international law, you will be prepared to tackle the challenges of the 21st century.

The MSc DIA is a two-year full-time interdisciplinary programme on the digital transformation of international affairs equipping students with the knowledge and skills necessary to shape the international relations of tomorrow. The programme is organised in cooperation with the University of Innsbruck.*
The objective of this new programme is to prepare its graduates for international careers with a focus on digital environments. To do so, the programme pursues two objectives: First, it seeks to enhance the students’ understanding of opportunities and risks which digitalisation has created in different, interrelated areas of international affairs such as diplomacy, law, security or economics. Second, the programme seeks to develop the students’ competence in applying digital technologies, including artificial intelligence, and methods for generating and analysing digital data.
This combination of understanding and applying digitalisation is unique in the global landscape of master programmes and will give graduates a competitive edge on the labour market. It will allow them to be innovative in a range of (overlapping) issue areas, including cyber-security, cyber-marketing, digital networking and artificial intelligence.
