Executive Diplomacy Training

A Seminar for Government Officials and International Affairs Professionals

Our Executive Diplomacy Training is an exceptional opportunity to engage directly with career ambassadors with decades of experience, and to gain invaluable first-hand insights into the world of diplomacy.

The purpose of this comprehensive course is to equip government officials, as well as international affairs professionals in the business and nonprofit sectors, with foundational knowledge and skills in diplomatic practice. It’s designed to offer trainees a unique chance to explore various aspects of diplomacy by raising the curtain on a fascinating and impactful profession, and to interact both with the instructors and each other.

Our instructors are ambassadors and other professional diplomats who have served in dozens of countries around the world. They share experience they gained by practicing diplomacy and managing international relations for decades, with simulation exercises and case studies derived from their own careers. They provide invaluable practitioners’ insight into policy-making and implementation, diplomatic protocol, the functions and management of embassies and consulates, diplomatic reporting and writing, negotiation and mediation, political and economic tradecraft, public diplomacy, cross-cultural communication, cyber diplomacy and other competencies.

Trainees receive a certificate from the Academy.

This two-week online program includes two 90-minute sessions per day (with one 30-minute break), Monday through Friday, for a total of 30 instruction hours. Sessions will be held live, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. EST.
