The Transnational Governance program from European University Institute (EUI) is the first of its kind, tailor-made to educate and train a new breed of policy leader able to navigate the unprecedented issues our world will face during the next decade and beyond.  

Visit the official programme website for more information


The  Transnational Governance program from European University Institute (EUI)  is designed to examine the most pressing policy issues of our time through an interdisciplinary lens, transcending the limits of a single country or region by bringing together perspectives from political science, sociology, economics, law, history and business/technology. 

Key facts:

Complex forces at play in today’s governance frameworks are now the rule, rather than the exception – a multiplicity of issue-areas and actors, whether public or private, local or international, governmental or NGO.

The challenges resulting from these interdependencies will prevail at an accelerating rate due to technology’s rapid disruption of almost every industry affecting the political balance of power in every country. Most traditional public policy, public administration and international relations degrees take the State as the main unit of analysis and policy action.

The Master in Transnational Governance is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to navigate and excel in a context where the processes of governing take place beyond the State. 

Programme Structure


  • Both modular and flexible, the core curriculum is designed to examine key transnational themes such as migration, climate change, gender governance, digital policy, trade and finance, and peace and security, to name a few.  
  • Students are required to declare a focus in one or more consolidation theme areas at the end of the first year in order to direct their professional development internship experience. The second year will require focused study in their selected thematic areas of specialisation to prepare them for proactive career development activities.
