Full-time master’s degree in the field of Economic Diplomacy and a Statecraft deals with the issues of the activity of national institutions in promoting the economic interests of the state. The curriculum combines the issue of economic diplomacy with the economic strategy of the state. Program points out that economic diplomacy is not only the issue of classical diplomacy with the tasks of promoting the country's economic interests, but building systemic and strategic solutions. Therefore, the study program indicates the need to treat economic diplomacy as state system related to the country's economic and political potential with its effective external promotion of its interests and cooperation with non-state actors in this area. In such an approach, it is more reasonable to use the English term "Economic Statecraft" as a multidimensional and multilevel system of promotion and implementation of economic interests abroad. Thus, economic diplomacy is understood as an activity to face the challenges in operating in culturally, politically and legally different markets, such as the countries of the EU's eastern neighborhood. The program also draws attention to the role of Poland and Central European countries as brokers of knowledge about cultural and political conditions of economic relations with countries east of the European Union.
Master’s degree in Economic Diplomacy and a Statecraft carries out the mission of the University by offering a universal education program containing theoretical and practical elements. The studies prepare graduates to use the acquired knowledge and competences on the labor market, in particular in government institutions and international business, as well as in diplomacy, international non-governmental organizations, research institutes and think tanks, and in the media.
Graduates of this degree will be equipped with the ability to think analytically, critically and independently, which will enable them to perform a complex analysis of the rapidly changing international political and economic reality.
