PSIA Faculty Members

At PSIA theory truly meets practice, essential for a leading professional school of international affairs. We rely on Sciences Po’s world-renowned professors and attract leading practitioners coming from Europe or abroad to join our faculty.

With an equal balance of academics and practitioners, the school has succeeded in building a faculty community of very high standard recognised both by the students and the wider international academic community. Each semester, some faculty and courses shine through as the most valued for their contribution across all Master and Concentration programs.

In the classroom, you will find the most distinguished political scientists, economists, historians, sociologists, lawyers, as well as diplomats, army generals, development specialists, leaders in the energy sector, writers, directors of international organizations, entrepreneurs, mediators, founders of NGOs, economists, and regional experts. Therefore, PSIA meets two crucial benchmarks for leading professional schools of international affairs: academics of the highest level and professionals with a diversity of life experience.

“PSIA excels at bridging the gap between theory and practice. In my experience, this is ideal for future leaders who aim to thrive as innovative and responsible actors of a challenging global world.”

Enrico Letta, Dean of PSIA, former Prime Minister of Italy
