OUR TEACHING METHODOLOGIES
All our programs are delivered through an experiential, hands-on approach that prepares students to become the next generation of leaders in public and private sectors around the globe.
To achieve this, we base our teaching strategy around three interconnected pillars: teaching, research and the educational ecosystem, a multidisciplinary approach to practical teaching that’s continuously informed and updated by our faculty’s research.
Through these pillars, we cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset for solving the real issues confronted in the modern world; inspire innovation and understanding of current technologies; and promote diversity and synergies in our global society.
Our faculty consists of world-leading practitioners, experts and professors from a diverse range of nationalities and backgrounds. During class, students have the opportunity to work closely with these professors and professionals, as well as through attending conferences and roundtables, and hearing guest speakers. Each of our faculty members contributes their own unique set of skills and knowledge within the field of international relations, economics, social entrepreneurship and regional studies.
Our centers and initiatives—such as the Center for the Governance of Change, the Transatlantic Relations Initiative or the PublicTech Lab—each aimed at continuous innovation, offer our students experiences that will give them insight into the global arena.
The intricate relationship between businesses and governments becomes even more complex at a global level. Students learn how to influence and navigate the areas where the public and private sectors converge.CENTER FOR THE GOVERNANCE OF CHANGE
Transatlantic relationships encompass their own realm of challenges, including trade, financial regulation, democratization and terrorism, among many others. Students become leaders in cooperative efforts throughout the Atlantic world, with a particular focus on the US-European relationship.TRANSATLANTIC RELATIONS INITIATIVE
As both technology and society evolve at a rapid pace, it is important to understand the impact that their changes have on one another. Students become familiar with the global forces that drive and merge innovation, technology and society.PUBLICTECH LAB
