Who? University students and young graduates, from a wide range of nationalities, religions, cultures and educational backgrounds, have the opportunity to learn, interact, and share their experiences in ways that can benefit their professional and personal development.

Where? On the island of Crete, at the campus of the Mediterranean Agronomic institute of Chania, the combination of history, culture and contemporary knowledge create the background for international Leadership .

What? The unique interdisciplinary program in the Mediterranean bringing together an elite group of students from around the world to explore the latest trends in the interrelated subjects of political economy, geopolitics, conflict management, law and economy, and more, ultimately developing personal emotional intelligence assessed in an international network of successful professionals.

Why? The mission of the Academy is to enhance the leadership potential of outstanding young scholars from diverse religious and ethnic backgrounds and applying the principles of Socrates in education, engender value societies across the globe.

The International Academy for Advanced Studies (TIAAS) continues and expands the International Institute for Political & Economic Studies (IIPES) 18 years’ legacy and successful experience. TIAAS is an academic program designed to explore and discuss the political, economic, and cultural issues of the world under democratic principles, respect of life and religion, freedom and dignity.

Through a series of interdisciplinary core courses, participants will learn to identify connections among areas of interest and actively engage in problem-solving that crosses ethnic, cultural, religious, regional, and global boundaries. At the same time, intercultural communication skills, recognized as a form of global communication, are developed, to meet with the increasing demands of professional markets going global or international.

Addressing the challenges of today's world demands going beyond the limits of specialized knowledge and create new forms of understanding and expertise. Tackling environmental, health, ethical and political challenges requires the ability to consider multiple aspects of the same issue, to work with experts across disciplines, and to integrate disparate bodies of knowledge, as the world does not conform to the boundaries of academic disciplines. Interdisciplinarity integrates a range of perspectives to provide a more comprehensive understanding of issues and challenges. Multiculturalism adds a major asset of skill.

TIAAS is designed to provide informed questions and knowledge tools, for the participants, to develop their answers, beyond regional or cultural stereotypes. Bridges are to be built among the Judaic, Christian and Moslem worlds, East and West Europeans, North and South.

The discussions of the issues raised in class are encouraged to continue outside the classroom, as the quest for answers is best developed in a more social setting. Events are planned to facilitate this interaction.

Experiencing Crete, and particularly Chania, one of the top vacation destinations, is equally rewarding, whether visiting Knossos, the site of the Minoan civilization, or walking through the Samaria gorge, or even swimming in the warm sea, on the full moon night.

Leadership through personal development is reinforced beyond academics with eminent guest lectures and special events such as Chania - Med Forum. The Country presentation event familiarizes participants and guests on national cultural particularities, while the Commencement ceremony sets a new intellectual beginning, after TIAAS.

The Academy is intended to provide a truly rewarding cultural experience, but also a challenge, since we expect the students to maintain a high level of academic performance.

Students in disciplines as diverse as biology, ecology, engineering, or sociology, history, religion, and even more so economics or political sciences, can conceivably face professional problems eventually which combine diverse dimensions. Students in these disciplines, who have had the experience in the way this program envisions, will be equipped to deal with such problems more successfully.

Even if returning as graduate students, you will be better able to compare, and understand, contributions that cross those boundaries.


The academic requirements of TIAAS demand active involvement at an intense and demanding pace.

American and European Professors are exploring the ideas of political economy and conflict management, political philosophy, economics, international relations and civil society, and the contemporary developments in an interdisciplinary reflective approach.

Related simulations on contemporary actual topics sets into practice the knowledge gained in the classroom.

In addition to classroom responsibilities, each professor will require a number of readings. It is highly recommended that students become familiar with these readings before attending TIAAS.

The Academy also hosts a number of prominent guest lecturers applying the concept of leadership in practice, including attendance to the Chania – Med Forum on “Economy, Energy, Politics and Power”.

All events in the Academy are based on the Socratic educational method. In other words they are interactive with discussion at all levels. Attendance and contributions are required.

All classes and discussion sessions are conducted in English, so proficiency in English is a requirement.

The pace of the Academy is designed, as the name implies, to challenge the leadership capabilities of each student but also support each one in achieving the highest possible level of rewarding personal development.


The Political Economy component will examine the structure and functions of the market economy, economic theories and economic strategies in real world political situations. Students also will discuss frameworks for developing and sustaining civil societies in the countries of the region. Present-day International development Issues and Challenges, discussions on the Intelligent World Economy are within the component.

The Conflict Resolution / management component will examine the politics of international conflict management, the roles played by states and international organizations, and examine relevant concepts offered by a variety of theories from the social sciences. Concepts and theories will be tested with reference to real conflicts.

The International Relations component includes Geopolitics, focused in the Mediterranean area related to the International Community, International Organizations with a focus on NATO, and the vision of Civil society involvement in decision making.

The Leadership component is approached collectively and individually, to achieve a highly interactive - integrating personal awareness, affirmation, accountability and action adapted to real time, through systemic impact training on leadership, on national and international levels.
