Last week, SAIS and INSEAD announced a dual-degree program. INSEAD, as most of you doubtless know, is a business school with campuses in France, Singapore and Abu Dhabi. More on the agreement below.
This new dual degree agreement gives me a chance to remind our readers of a couple of important things.
Most of the Bologna Center students do a second year in Washington and at the end receive a Master's of Arts in International Relations.
This does not apply to MIPP candidates, of course, as they are enrolled for only one year and choose either the DC or the Bologna campus.
Alternatively, SAIS Bologna students may decide to purse an MAIA -- or a Master's of Arts in International Affairs. This is a two-year program with a thesis in the second year and 14 required course credits over the two years instead of 16.
A few students stay in Bologna for two years and receive an MAIA. The MAIA is also offered as part of our dual-degree programs with the Università di Bologna (both the Bologna and Forlì campuses), and with the Diplomatic Academy in Vienna. So a student can do one year at one of those universities and a second year at SAIS Bologna and receive two degrees.
We also have an agreement with
We are confident that, with INSEAD as our partner, the students who pursue dual degrees will find that the whole is greater than the sum of such excellent parts, and doors will open for superb careers of international engagement.”
If anyone has any questions on these various options -- which together open up a wide range of career options -- please send them along.
