Programme Introduction

The two-year M.A. in Diplomacy, Law and Business programme is intended to be neither a totally academic nor a fully vocational one. It stresses on theoretical research but insists on relating it to empirically rich phenomena from the social world. Unlike mainstream M.A. programmes in International Relations, which are loaded in favour of theoretical research or ‘professional’ course work and internships, M.A. Diplomacy, Law and Business strikes a balance between the two and requires students to be versed in both domains.

A number of core and elective courses in this M.A. Diplomacy, Law and Business programme’s curriculum have research essay assignments, which are expected to be at the frontier of ongoing scholarly debates and simultaneously accessible to policymakers in India and abroad.

Why JSIA?

The increasing interconnectedness of international phenomena due to greater density of cross border contact and exchanges is rendering the practical and academic use of single disciplined and methodologically incomplete studies obsolete. A school that combines the essences of International Relations, International Law and International Business is a necessity of our globalized times because of the density and thickness of international problems.

The Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA) aims to provides students most up-to-date education and enhance Indian and international capacities of analysing and solving world problems.

It intends to strengthen the intellectual basis for planning India’s march to great power status as a responsible member of the international community with its own trademark vision for global governance and stable world order.
