During their visit to Spain, the Deans also discussed these topics in an audience with His Royal Majesty King Felipe VI at the Zarzuela Palace in Madrid. King Felipe VI, who himself graduated from one of the APSIA member schools, exchanged opinions with the deans not only about the state of global affairs and the topics that will shape the global agenda, but also on the way academic institutions should adapt their pedagogy and content in order to stay at the forefront of knowledge production and professional training.

In this 3-day meeting, the APSIA deans also visited to de City Hall of Madrid, the Spanish Royal Academy, the Prado and Sorolla Museum and the city of Segovia (UNESCO World Heritage Site), where IE University has its historical campus.

“The city of Madrid and IE University provided a wonderful backdrop against which to consider the future of international affairs, as well as explore ever-better ways to prepare future generations for the many professions of international affairs,” concluded Carmen Iezzi Mezzera, Executive Director of APSIA.

APSIA is one of the world’s most important educational alliances, bringing together the leading graduate schools of international affairs and public policy. Currently, 38 schools from 10 different countries are full-members of APSIA, as well as an additional 29 affiliated universities from eight countries. IE School of Global and Public Affairs is one of the few European schools in the alliance and the only Spanish full-member.
