The Washington International Diplomatic Academy, which provides training to diplomats and other government officials from around the world, is now offering a training program in June and recruiting participants who are interested in considering a career in diplomacy and international affairs. The details are as shown below:
A Training Program for Students and Early-Career Professionals
Full-time: June 4–15, 2018 or July 16-27, 2018
Part-time: June 19–August 4, 2018
The summer academy is a unique training program that helps prepare undergraduate and graduate students, recent graduates and early-career professionals for careers in international diplomacy. It introduces them to the fundamentals of diplomatic practice and focuses on practical, real-life aspects of work in national and local governments, embassies and consulates, international organizations and multinational businesses. The material emphasizes a skills-based approach and is generally not offered at colleges and universities. The program also includes one-on-one and group career-counseling sessions.
Some of the most respected diplomats in recent years join other officials and experts to provide big-picture views on the current state of international relations, as well as lessons learned and insight into policy-making and implementation, diplomatic protocol, the functions and management of embassies and consulates, public diplomacy and intercultural communication, immunities and other aspects of living abroad, and many other issues. The full-time program offers classes every weekday (9 a.m.-5 p.m.), as well as weekend activities. The part-time program's sessions take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays (7 p.m.-9 p.m.) and Saturdays (10 a.m.-4 p.m.).
