International relations have come into existence ever since Antiquity, when people first organised themselves in city-states.
In recent times, when information has become easily transmissible, enabled organisations and businesses to grow and spread and become multinational and some have come to generate revenue that exceeds the GDP of many nations, permitting these organisations to employ extraordinary influence over international politics.
The technological revolution and the rise of social media have further linked global audiences in ways that were next to impossible prior. Information is now available a fingertip away, nearly in real-time. Governments and businesses alike are now pursuing professional individuals, skilled in international relations and diplomacy, who can facilitate them measuring up to the needs and challenges of this shift towards globalisation.
The overall aims of the Online International Relations and Diplomacy at Robert Kennedy College are to:
- further develop relevant business, international relations, diplomacy and organisation knowledge, both academic and professional, in line with postgraduate standards/benchmarks;
- develop critical reflection skills and engagement with organisational and professional theory to understand and, where appropriate, challenge existing individual and organisational perspectives and practices (with a particular focus on digital marketing, international relations and diplomacy);
- develop, and where appropriate apply, new knowledge to add value by enhancing organisational capability;
- develop understanding of an organisation’s strategic focus and environment, and the impact of the inter-relationship between the organisation’s resources and clients in the evolving global business environment;
- develop commitment to continuous personal and professional development, independence and reflective learning;
- develop particular expertise and understanding in the fields of international relations, diplomacy, global governance, business and management.
