Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

You can use education as a tool for global development. Earn two masters in five semesters.


The Joint MPA / MA in International Education Management program prepares students to be leaders at the intersection of education, development, and international exchange. Rather than earning a single Master of Public Administration, students earn two degrees: an MPA and an MA in International Education Management.

The joint-degree program offers a multidisciplinary approach to education within the international development context. Students gain practical skills and tools while building in-depth management competencies for educational settings of all types.


In five semesters, students earn a Master of Public Administration (MPA) and an MA in International Education Management. Our distinctive program features four semesters of coursework and a one-semester professional practicum in the international education field. To learn more, view the curriculum overview »

You will have access to faculty members who are experts in fields such as international enrollment, education development, and consulting.

Content-based learning in the language of your choice is built into the core courses of both degrees.
