"ASERI has been a special period of my life, `short but intense` so to say, as even if it lasted less than one year it had a long term impact on my professional life for many years to come. Since I started university my main goal has been to work in the field of development with international organizations such as the United Nations, but after my first degree it was clear that I could not achieve such goal without a solid international oriented training that could provide the profile required by those organizations. The Master at ASERI has been for me the opportunity to develop such a higher profile, mainly by giving access to an incredible reserve of both global knowledge and inspirational people, two key ingredients that shaped my career path beyond expectations!".
Arouna Roshanian, Consultant, FAO – Lomé

Luigi Zarro, Economic & Business Development Specialist, Yarra Ranges Council – Melbourne

"During the months at ASERI, I had the benefit of being exposed to a broad array of subjects and advantage of being instructed by excellent professors who offered their unique insight and views in their respective areas of expertise".
Mauro Gioè, Programme Manager Economic Sector, EU Delegation to the Republic of Yemen - Sana’a

"Studying International Relations taught me how to unravel the complex and often invisible network of factors and multifaceted relations amongst states and to understand the contemporary world order. This Master offered me a benchmark and guided me to investigate the complex security and public policy issues of the 21st century. It also equipped me with the theoretical and empirical research tools to comprehend the forces that shape global politics.
Thanks to my IR study the field research and analysis has continued to build my skills and right now I got awarded the Exeter University International Excellence Scholarships of 2017-2018 to study a Ph.D. in Women’s Experience of Sexual Gender Based Violence in Armed Conflict during the Second Sudanese Civil War 1983-2005.
The multicultural setting of the course with professors from different countries and prestigious universities and students from more than 20 states is something that brings the rich experience that shapes your worldview as you interact with people from different cultural backgrounds and try to understand their various opinions. I was lucky to be part of this course and it has changed my life forever".
