I would like to welcome you to the exciting School of International Relations and Diplomacy at Riara University. Through its various programs, the School offers a unique blend of academic and professional training to enable students to become future leaders and employable graduates.

We recognize that in the current era of global interdependence, collaborative efforts are needed to meet the most pressing challenges in international politics, security, and economics.

To achieve this, the program critically analyzes key areas of International Relations, such as Diplomacy, Foreign Policy, International Law, International Security, and International Political Economy through a multidisciplinary approach. Our first-rate students are continuously exposed to practical leadership skills through diverse expositions, such as ‘simulation’ and ‘pitching’, as the most important tools needed in the contemporary global workforce.
