"The MA in International Public Affairs (MIPA) is an excellent course which combines a rigorous academic program with a strong focus on employability. Seminars held by world renowned academics are supplemented with guest professionals from several different fields. By keeping the threshold for selection high and the number of students low the School of Government ensures that all students are able to develop not only a professional but also personal relationship to the academic and administrative staff. This is also reflected in the high level of personal choice for elective modules, where we are allowed to choose freely from almost all courses offered at LUISS." Jacob Kreyberg (Norway, MIPA 2013-2014)
“The LUISS School of Government’s Masters in International Public Affairs is an amazing program. It is rare to find a program that integrates both practical and theoretical learning. Students are taught by diplomats, world renown scholars and professional leaders from various institutions such as the European Commission and the Italian Constitutional Court. LUISS strives to ensure all students reach their full potential and have access to as many new and exciting experiences as possible. Within a few weeks from starting the program I had the privilege to meet and interact with the former Italian Prime Minister, the American Ambassador to Italy and the Italian Minister of European Affairs. MIPA students develop the skills needed to be dynamic thinkers and global leaders of the future. The staff and faculty are always available to provide insight and support. I truly could not have selected a better program.” Shadia Sadaqa (USA-MIPA 2012-2013)
"The Master in International Public Affairs at LUISS School of Government combines an intensive training in some of the more required skills for professionals at the international level together with high profile academic programs. Professors come from both the academic and the professional world, and therefore offer an original and direct perspective on the field of international relations. During the program I was able to improve my analytical and writing skills, training that often lack in our universities. This intense training helped me a lot in undertaking the next step, a PhD in new media policy." Valentina Scialpi, PhD Candidate City University of Hong Kong, (MIPA 2012-2013)
“The Master in International Public Affairs has been an incredible experience. I had the chance to study and interact with top international professors and experts and complete an internship in the international public affairs department of a leading Italian telecommunication multinational. I am now back in Poland working for a local authority in charge of managing EU projects”. Kasia Jachowitz (Poland MIPA 2011-2012)
“After my first professional experiences with the UNV Programme and the Roma Education Fund in Budapest, I felt the need for advance training in international public policy. As I was looking for the right master course, I found the Master in International Public Affairs of the LUISS School of Government and, having looked at its hand-on approach and international faculty, I realised that it was the right course for me. I have never regretted this choice. I am now programme assistant at the the Sweden-based International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, doing exactly what I like!” Eleonora Mura (Italy MIPA 2010-2011)
