About

Today’s global marketplace demands skilled professionals who can work with international businesses, government, IGOs, and NGOs on rapidly changing trade, investment, and diplomacy issues. We offer a master degree in International Trade and Economic Diplomacy at Middlebury Institute of International Studies. 

Overview

The Middlebury Institute of International Studies Master of Arts in International Trade and Economic Diplomacy (ITED) helps you develop policy analysis and trade negotiation skills for careers in businesses, government, and civil society. Economic interdependence between countries and across production chains continues to grow, despite the recent pushback against globalization. International trade creates opportunities that can stimulate innovation, promote growth, and reduce poverty. This is a three-semester, 48-credit program.

From NAFTA to the U.S.-China trade war, trade is at the forefront of many public policy discussions today. It is crucial to understand trade from diplomatic and practical standpoints. This is truly a pivotal time to launch a career in this critical area.

  • It includes relevant skills and hands-on course work, options for specialization (such as economic diplomacy, trade compliance, and economic development), and a final immersion semester for internships and other professional experience.
