Postgraduate Diploma | Geopolitics and Global Governance (UOC, IBEI)


The goal of this programme is to introduce participants into the challenges of world governance, to make them aware of the multiple dimensions existing in the international arena, to make them easier to understand the challenges at economic and political level considering the geopolitical context and the policy processes involved.

Participant Profile

The participant profile is broad: on the one hand, graduate students with an interest in international studies and geopolitical issues, on the other hand, professionals and interested audiences that required a better understanding of current international decision-making processes.


This program will provide and enhance the following capacities:

  • Identify data sources and conduct rigorous bibliographic and documentary searches.
  • Argue and establish, based on data and theory, plausible explanations about international phenomena and establish ways to validate or refute them.
  • Prepare and present reports and/or intervention proposals.
  • Use English both to receive and to communicate information, analysis and proposals.

Who it is aimed at

This is a postgraduate programme aimed at graduate students with degrees in social sciences (Political Science, Sociology, Economics, Business and Administration, Social Sciences), other degrees, and non-graduate students interested in international policy issues and sensitized by the problems of the current world. The subjects of the course are master's degree level, but non-graduate students will be admitted provided they have a minimum level to study on the programme.

Career opportunities

This programme would complement the international relations profile of professionals in many different areas currently working on matters with an international scope. The programme has been designed to reveal the intricacies of world politics and global governance, both at sector level and their aggregate geo-political dimensions.
