Programme Description

From climate change to gender equality, security to the emergence of a digital society; today’s governance issues increasingly transcend national borders. In this global context, policy- makers must come up with new responses to the unprecedented challenges our society will face during the next decade and beyond.

Training future leaders to tackle cross-border challenges

The Master of Arts in Transnational Governance is the first of its kind, tailored to equip the leaders of tomorrow with the knowledge and skills needed to tackle cross-border issues in their complexity and interconnectedness. Our School, based at the European University Institute in Florence, offers the ideal setting for this purpose: students benefit from the Institute's resources and networks, while drawing on the ambience that inspired thought leaders and change-makers such as Da Vinci, Machiavelli and Caterina de Medici.

Combining interdisciplinary perspectives with hands-on training

The programme is designed to examine the most pressing policy issues of our time through an interdisciplinary lens, by bringing together perspectives from political science, sociology, economics, law, history and business/technology. Built upon a uniquely analytical approach that considers the broader impact of governing beyond nation states, students learn not only which policy tools to consider, but how best to combine and orchestrate them in order to design effective outcome-driven transnational policies.
