This executive program offers a tailored modular structure, aiming at providing solid historical, political and institutional perspectives of the current domestic, regional and international dynamics affecting the stability of the region.

The seminars mainly focus on the contemporary period, through a multi-disciplinary approach (international relations, geopolitics, conflicts and security, economy and energy).

Nonetheless, specific sections are devoted to the historical and religious foundations of the modern Middle East, from the birth of Islam to the evolution of Islamic thought, law and economy.

The peculiarities of the region will also be analyzed through dedicated focus on the different geopolitical areas (from Maghreb to Central-Southern Asia).


ASERI proposes a path specifically designed for executives, managers and young professionals from any country, who aspire to deepen their knowledge on the political-economic dynamics of the Middle East and on its socio-cultural peculiarities, and strengthen their working competences.

The Executive Program in Middle Eastern Studies will grant a certificate of participation (min. 60 hrs. of training) from Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore - ASERI.
