The International Relations and Economic Diplomacy program is exercised on the Faculty of Management, University of Primorska (Koper, Slovenia) for the first year and then on the Faculty of Political Science, Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) (Moscow, Russia) for the second year.


The mission of the program is to train specialists with a wide range of vision in global governance, international relations, world economic processes, and different issues connected with the political activity of state and non-governmental actors, global and regional institutions.

About the program

The masters program in International Relations and Economic Diplomacy at Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) aims to allow students to acquire broad and essential knowledge needed to understand social and political traditions, as well as international relations for their work in today's postmodern society. Students will learn independent thinking, as well as judging and conceiving the future differently. Apart from classical political, social and humanistic themes, the program puts a great emphasis on ethics, own practical work, as well as actively concieve art and science in the broad sense.

The study is aimed at young people who are eager for new skills, but above all different visions and interpretations of the world in which we live. It is intended for students who are willing to seriously pursue studies and work together with their colleagues and professors in order to go beyond the existing academic practices that often underestimate the abilities and ambitions of young people. All this is still necessary today if we want to educate independent people who will be able to trust in themselves and also to deal with the problems of today's world.
