Our programmes

We offer a wide selection of content in topics like sustainable development, peace and security, leadership and management, change management and operational excellence. We develop learning and training solutions that focus on building participants’ substantive knowledge and core professional skills.

Beyond bringing together United Nations staff from across the system through learning and training, our comparative advantage lies in our ability to provide learning and training opportunities that offer an  inter-agency, multi-sectoral perspective. Such interchanges spark a rich exchange of experiences and perspectives. Whether online or at one of our campuses, we host unique dialogue spaces for civil society, academic, public-sector, NGO, and private-sector stakeholders.
