  • “I could not have asked for a more wide-ranging and enriching educational experience than the one provided by the Paris School of International Affairs. The Masters programme manages to be challenging and fun, academic and practical, career-oriented and intellectually stimulating, all at the same time. For two years I have been in the heart of Paris, surrounded by an eclectic and international student body, learning from the best and generally having the time of my life. I would recommend PSIA to anyone who asks.”Edwin, PSIA '15, Master's in International Development, Concentrations in Emerging Economies and Middle East, Cum Laude.
  • “The mantra of PSIA is really that although the problems are global, the solutions must be local and relative to cultural, political, and social specificities.” Anjuli Pandit, PSIA '13, Master's in International Public Management.
