We prepare professionals of Public and International Affairs at the most diverse school of ADA University right in the heart of exciting and multicultural environment of Baku, the meeting point of East and West. In a globalized world, where borders keep wading away in all senses, we guide our students to develop a deep understanding of the multifaceted nature of local and global affairs. We inspire our graduates to appreciate, respect and thrive in diversity with emotional intelligence. We encourage them to collaborate to share – both governance and responsibility.
