Overview

 The  Advanced International Studies programme at The Diplomatic Academy of Vienna - Vienna School of International Studies is aimed at university and college graduates of all disciplines and all nationalities who wish to attain profound knowledge of international relations through a multidisciplinary master’s programme.

Career

MAIS graduates are equipped with best-in-practice scientific research skills and language competencies that benefit them while commencing their professional careers within international organisations, business and government. Along with commercial and governmental job prospects, graduates are also fully equipped to embark on further research and academic careers.

Programme Structure

  • During their first year at the DA, students attend classes in the fields of political science, international relations, economics and international economic relations, contemporary history as well as international and European law. The students' interests, preferences and prior knowledge are taken into account in individual student counselling sessions. The knowledge previously acquired in undergraduate programmes is complemented and supplemented and the necessary basis for the analysis of specific topic areas during the second year is created.
  • In the second MAIS year students apply the knowledge acquired during the first year in specialised courses and seminars to analyse problems and solve case studies. Methodological and interdisciplinary seminars, presented by experienced professionals from politics and science, prepare students for writing their Master’s thesis.
