Peace, Trade & Development Program
The Peace, Trade & Development program (PTD) is custom designed to provide upper-level undergraduates, prospective graduate students, and new professionals with challenging learning experiences to master key concepts and tools in human security, global trade, social change and development.
About Our Program
Do these questions inspire or intrigue you?
How does global trade contribute to development through access to technology, capital, and more? How do we promote peace-building and positive social change? What role do businesses, governments, and civil society organizations play in shaping global development?
If so, the Peace, Trade and Development Certificate Program could launch you on the path to become an effective agent of global change.
What Will You Do in the Program?
Over a four-week period, participants work through an integrated curriculum covering trade policy, development, conflict resolution and social change, and their impact on crucial global issues.
Classes are delivered by policy and business faculty from the Monterey Institute, and include both lectures and “hands-on” learning from case studies, simulations, and group discussions. A series of site visits allow participants to see these concepts in action, taking advantage of California’s unique role in the global economy.
Summer 2013 Schedule
July 22-August 15: Classes will meet Monday-Friday from 10am-12pm and 2-4pm at the Monterey Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California. There will be 1-2 days of site visits per week.
