Created in 1989, the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) is dedicated to the improvement of graduate education in international affairs.

We seek thereby to advance international understanding, prosperity, peace, and security through the people and ideas shaped by our schools.

APSIA brings together the leading graduate schools around the world, which specialize in international affairs. We strengthen our members and affiliates by gathering information and sharing ideas. We connect prospective students and employers to our member schools, so that they can capitalize on the skills an APSIA education provides. We collaborate with other higher education institutions and the professional international affairs community in order to address common problems.

APSIA helps students, schools, organizations, and partners transform themselves into more effective agents of positive change.
