Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

MA in International Trade & Economic Diplomacy

We educate students to be leaders and policy makers equipped to launch successful international careers in international trade, diplomacy, and economic policy.

International Trade & Economic Diplomacy Program

Our 18-month International Trade and Economic Diplomacy program develops highly skilled international trade and economic policy professionals fully prepared to work productively in the rapidly changing global marketplace. Our graduates work with businesses, government and NGOs on the world's most pressing international trade and diplomacy matters.

As a student in this program you will gain a deep understanding of policy analysis and trade negotiations as well as the opportunity to focus on one of three tracks in the trade and economic diplomacy program: business, government, or civil society.

The program takes 18 months to complete, starting with intensive training in Monterey in the late summer, and continuing on with courses in the fall, winter, and spring. The final fall semester takes place in Washington, D.C., and prepares students to pursue careers in international trade and economic diplomacy.
