Cooperation Agreement between the University of Bucharest and the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD).

The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy and the University of Bucharest formalized their partnership in 2013 to provide an MA in Globalization and Cultural Diplomacy. This program started in the fall semester of 2013 on the 2nd of October.

The MA combines both the study of cultural diplomacy and globalization and will therefore allow students to gain a deeper understanding of this innovative and emerging academic field, which is gradually taking on a greater level of importance and relevance in the contemporary global arena.

Not only does this course allow for the student to have access to an expert faculty with vast experience in international politics, diplomacy and economics, but students are also guided with professional advice and support to develop professional development projects that will prepare them for their future careers.

The MA has been devised to combine the fields of Cultural Diplomacy and Globalization through a diverse, tailored and interdisciplinary curriculum, which includes classes in international relations, political science and philosophy. It is intended to give students a greater knowledge and insight into these academic fields, which are now taking on a greater level of importance and relevance in the contemporary global arena. The program is a new challenge for the university, but one it is eagerly anticipating, as it will help increase international awareness of the university and attract enthusiastic, talented students. It will be co-taught by professors in Bucharest and Berlin, with classes taking place in both cities.
The MA Students will have the opportunity to study under an expert faculty with vast experience in international politics, diplomacy and economics. The Rector of the University Mircea Dimitru emphasized the values of the university of free scientific research, of excellence of education and social inclusion. Upholding these values, the institution has over 1,000 professors and instructors and works with over 34,000 students. There are 19 faculties and over 50 departments.

It is a great success for the ICD to be able to act in partnership with a University that Rector Dumitru highlights as playing "an important role in higher education in Romania and in this part of Europe". The program will prepare students very well for positions at the level of the European Union, the European Commission and also in NGOs. Dimitru also pointed out not only the positives of the program and the rich scientific and academic environment of the university, but also of the opportunity for students to live in the city of Bucharest which has all sorts of cultural attractions and a great atmosphere for students to enjoy.
