    Those who are already working, or are getting ready to work, in an international environment face a number of key challenges. They have to endeavor to understand the major international political economic and security dynamics in order to be able to forecast the direction they will take in the future. The capabilities needed to accomplish this make for a truly value-added skills set for a globalized world which is increasingly characterized by complex, interconnected issues in constant evolution.

    Part One (MOOC) will provide:
    a) a methodological basis to start moving in the “troubled waters” of analysis of international relations;
    b) basic knowledge for managing the major geopolitical and geo-economic issues; ability to deal with data collection and analysis, and to be aware of the key elements of international negotiations.

    What is the profile of a manager in international relations? What knowledge and skills are needed to manage international relations?

    Module 1 – International scenario of the 21<sup>st</sup> century

    Module 2 – Managing complexity in a changing world

    Module 3 – Toolkit for the manager
    The strategic role of information

    Module 4 – Bargaining in a complex world        
    Strategies and tools for confronting complex situations with successful outcomes

    a) Video lessons
    b) Reading and study materials
    c) Assignments and exercises
    d) Discussion Forum

    Part One (MOOC) will require an average of 12 hours of work/study in total.
