The DA's Executive Training Programmes offer:
Wide range of topics - Broad international audience - Research and dialogue
The DA's many years of experience as a centre of academic excellence, together with its emphasis on the training of soft skills, form the basis of its high profile as a provider of training programmes on diplomacy, international and European affairs as well as specialised language courses. Vienna, a capital of rich cultural heritage and home to numerous international organisations such as the UN, IAEA, UNIDO, CTBTO, OSCE and OPEC, provides the ideal environment for the implementation of the tailor-made trainings offered at the DA.
The DA organises a broad range of Executive Training Programmes for public officials and diplomats from Southeast Europe, the Black Sea region/South Caucasus, as well as from Africa, Central Asia and the Caribbean.
Tailor-made programmes are created at the specific request of governments, international organisations, universities and companies. These seminars and modules are organised in Vienna and abroad, preparing participants for international leadership roles.
The DA trains public officials for the specific tasks they face when their country holds the EU Council Presidency; additionally, consultancy services are provided to governments establishing or reforming diplomatic training institutes.
Summer Schools or training modules on International Affairs are offered to academics and researchers from all over the world, and organised in cooperation with international universities.
As part of a European research network the DA has acquired a high level of competence in the increasingly important field of science diplomacy and has developed trainings in this field.
A team of highly experienced and dedicated project managers stands ready to design and implement these programmes to fulfil the individual requirements of its clients.
