Student reviews of the course
- Gaia Venegoni | Alumna
"I will remember my experience as a student of Economic Diplomacy at the Brussels Diplomatic Academy as one of the most formative of my life. I was looking for a post-graduate program that would bring an added value to my CV, and I wanted it to be located right at the heart of Europe and tailored to its students. Being an international student, I needed to make many adjustments to come to Brussels, and therefore I have been very selective in the choice.
If you are thinking about making a valuable choice for a solid future in Diplomacy and International Trade: look you no further than the BDA!"
This programme is designed to enable graduates to enter the labour market or improve their career prospects within and beyond the field of economic diplomacy.
