The STG’s executive education courses provide a unique transnational perspective on a wide range of key policy areas including digital governance, regulation, migration, climate, health and EU governance. With a line-up of around 15 open training courses and programmes in 2022, the offer aims at equipping professionals from public institutions, NGOs, the media and the private sector with the necessary tools to tackle international and transnational issues in their respective fields of competence.

The courses will be offered in residential, online and blended format. The in-person courses take place in the stunning premises of the European University Institute campus in Florence and Fiesole. Participants will learn from the best professors and trainers from academia, business and politics, including José Manuel Barroso, former European Commission President, Madeleine de Cock Buning, Vice President Public Policy EMEA at Netflix and chair of the advisory board of the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO), Jos Delbeke, EIB Climate Chair and former Director of DG Climate, and STG full-time professors such as Kalypso Nicolaidis, Michael Bauer, Adam Kamrad-Scott, Kenneth Amaeshi, Claudio Radaelli and Diane Stone

In addition, the School partners with top-tier institutions such as Universidad de los Andes, for the development of the Open to Health programme, and the members of the European and Transnational Governance Network (ETNG). With these, it offers a joint ETGN certificate to participants attending multiple courses across the network and it is collaborating for the development of a joint Summer School in Florence.

Moreover, for 2022, customised training programmes have been developed for the European Court of Auditors, Eurocities and the Finnish Institute of Public Administration.

"We have put together an excellent training offer for 2022 that will equip participants with the latest knowledge and key skills in their field, with each course combining academic knowledge with practical policymaking experience," said Prof George Papaconstantinou, Director of the STG Executive Education Programme and Former Finance Minister of Greece.

Since the launch of the executive education programme in 2018, the STG has welcomed more than 850 participants from every region of the world to attend its courses. The course offering will continue to grow in years ahead through tailored-made training solutions in carefully curated areas of transnational governance and public policy for select institutions.

Highlights from 2021 included training courses on Gender and women’s rights dimensions in terrorism and counter-terrorism co-organised with the UN Team of Experts and UNODC, on Migration Communication Strategies run with the EUI’s Migration Policy Centre, and a course on Match-fixing and corruption sports governance.
