Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

MA in International Trade and Economic Diplomacy

Make an Impact on Global Trade and Welfare

Our three-semester 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.

The program, beginning with intensive training and courses in Monterey, and ending with a semester in Washington, D.C., prepares students to pursue careers in international trade and economic diplomacy.

Students gain a deep understanding of policy analysis and trade negotiations, and course work is presented in the context of real-world and current issues.

How ITED Can Make an Impact
