The Institute of Diplomacy and International Studies (IDIS) was established in 2006 to meet the challenges of globalization and the increasing demand for world-class professionals in international affairs in Thailand and the Asian region. With its multi-disciplinary appraoch, IDIS became the first institute of its kind in Southeast Asia. The establishment of IDIS is an important step in the implementation of Rangsit University’s Road Map to Excellence Strategy, which creates qualified graduates for the region and world at large.
Many career opportunities are open to IDIS graduates, especially in Southeast Asia and broader Asia where there is significant demand for graduates knowledgeable in politics, international relations and development studies. Opportunities include positions in government ministries, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, think tanks, the media, international businesses and educational institutions. To increase their opportunities many of our undergraduate students progress to postgraduate study at IDIS or at other universities across the globe.
