Asia and the Middle East are two of the most fascinating and rapidly developing regions of the World, creating challenges and offering opportunities for the 21st century. By 2050, close to 60% of world’s consumers will live in the region, China will be an indisputable superpower, Hindi, Bengali and Urdu will dominate much of the world business, Islam will change and diversify due to its contact with modernity, and migration will continue to put pressure on the Middle East.
The master's programme in Contemporary Asian and Middle Eastern Studies provides a comprehensive curriculum in Asian and Middle Eastern economies, politics, languages and societies, a flexible and personalised study plan, and a multinational study environment. The programme creates tailor-made study packages at our partner universities across Asia and the Middle East, and values the need to fine-tune your practical skills through internships.
