The Master's Program of Conflict Management and Humanitarian Action (CMHA) at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies has received official accreditation from the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA), a higher education accreditation institution based in Germany with a focus on administrative studies, law, the social sciences, and economics. The accreditation process is extensive, and programs undergo multiple rigorous stages to confirm their fulfillment of the highest standards in the fields of education, research, administration, and student care. On March 30th, 2022, the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies announced that the Political Science and International Relations Master's program and the Comparative Literature Master's program had also received FIBAA accreditation.

The MSc in Conflict Management and Humanitarian Action is a two-year degree, with a total of 42 credit hours (84 ECTS credits) and an option for part-time study (taking three or four years). The program provides students with the unique opportunity to intellectually engage in the fields of conflict management and resolution, conflict transformation, humanitarianism, negotiation, mediation, state-building, and reconstruction theories and practices from both regional and international perspectives.

The program prepares graduates for careers in diverse fields, including think tanks, national and international NGOs, and further graduate study. Post-graduate destinations have thus far included Qatar Foundation, Reach Out to Asia, Education Above All, UNHCR, UNRWA, UNICEF, and OCHA.

The MSc in Conflict Management and Humanitarian Action provides students with unique educational opportunities that combine theory and practice in specialized topics within the fields of conflict management and humanitarian action. Receiving official accreditation from FIBAA is a testament to the quality teaching, care and support for students, cultural diversity, and impact of academic research ensured by the CMHA program and its success in meeting top-level quality assurance standards in the field. We are proud of this milestone achievement and look forward to the program's continued success in contributing meaningfully to the lives of its students, staff, faculty, and their communities.
