Each year, up to four students, who are nominated by PUC-Rio, will be able to spend their first year there working towards a Master in International Relations from the Institute of International Relations (IRI/PUC-Rio) before transferring to the Graduate Institute.
At the Institute, they will spend the next two years working towards an Interdisciplinary Master in either Development Studies or International Affairs. MA theses will be co-directed by a professor from both the Graduate Institute and IRI.
This master programme is ideal for MAPI students interested in pursuing careers in international affairs/development studies within government agencies, public corporations, economic and development institutions and related consulting organisations.

Two Graduate Institute MA programme options are available:
Students will have the opportunity to take a French language course beginning in August before fall classes begin on 15 September.
