Master in International Relations 2012-13



The MIR is an innovative postgraduate program developed for graduates willing to deepen their knowledge of the field of international relations through an immediate privileged experience with a distinguished faculty and top-level professionals.

The principal aim of the Diploma is to provide students with knowledge and managerial skills indispensable for a professional career in international organizations and companies working in a constantly changing global environment.

The MIR provides a well-balanced combination of theory and practise, by focusing on international relations, economics, politics and law, as well as those emerging issues that challenge today's global system: trade, finance, security, information and communication technology, energy, environment and global networks.

The privileged partnership with important academicians from different countries and leading professionals from multinational companies, international institutions, and non-governmental organizations will allow students to take part in team projects and individual internships. English is the language of instruction of the Master.

The Master's Diploma (Level I) will be granted by Università Cattolica after the achievement of 60 credits gained through the attendance to all the Master activities and the positive results in the examinations taken.

The MIR begins next January 2013 at the ASERI campus in Milan.

Scientific coordinator: prof. Roberto Zoboli


ASERI Masters' courses are in response to the current job market demands: they train students in a constant face to face comparison with theoretical topics, but provoking their personalities and experiences to form a practical and highly professional point of view.

With this in mind, the Università Cattolica decided to create ASERI in 1995 as a centre of excellence in the heart of Milan. Students experience the new global reality through a unique collaboration of exclusive international faculty, meetings with senior executives, multicultural classes, flexible modular-format courses in English and international internships.

Thanks to its expertise and multi-disciplinary nature, the ASERI approach offers a strong functional understanding of international issues and processes, as well as an in-depth scientific study of methodologies, disciplines and career training.
