Master of Global Affairs (MGA)
The master of global affairs program prepares students for professional careers at the national and international levels within organisations that address interstate issues, work to prevent or resolve conflict and promote global cooperation. It also prepares students for careers in multilateral organisations that work with developing countries, and support the policy dialogue between nations and international institutions in order to shape and implement global standards. Finally, the MGA program aims to allow students to analyse the national processes through which global principles influence and interact with policies at the country level.
The mission of the MGA program is to support public, private, nongovernmental and multilateral organisations in Egypt, the region and globally, by equipping young professionals with the knowledge and skills needed in the conduct of global affairs, from the national, regional and multilateral perspectives. Students will develop skills in the analysis of global issues, development of policies and strategies, and their implementation and governance through a range of institutions in order to meet the needs of a changing world, particularly regarding states at different levels of influence and development, as well as their citizens.
Graduates of the program hold positions as international cooperation analysts, global engagement analysts, security analysts. Job opportunities also include positions such as international regional directors, regional deputy directors, and jobs in the field of intergovernmental affairs.
