The purpose of the academy’s customized training is to help Ministries of Foreign Affairs carry out their role in policy-making and implementation successfully in both the short and long terms.
In the short term, the program achieves these objectives by preparing diplomats and other officials in various departments and offices to excel at their immediate duties. At the same time, it creates a long-term system for a structured and continuous professional formation and development of diplomats at all levels throughout their careers.
In addition, the program assists ministries in re-aligning and improving their structures, operations and priorities — both at home at abroad — in order to enhance their capabilities, effectiveness and efficiency. It also helps them capitalize on the opportunities and manage the risks created by a rapidly changing world. The academy offers similar training programs to multinational NGOs and businesses that can benefit from diplomacy skills.
