Designed to provide the practical tools needed to compete in the global economy, this interdisciplinary program explores the way business, technology, law, economics, and public policy affect complex cross-border activities.
Unlike traditional international affairs programs, the Master's in International Commerce and Policy program focuses on international economic issues such as global trade and investment. It is also distinguished from an MBA program by providing training in the political, technological, cultural, and social aspects of the global economy.
