The program is largely-based on coursework presented through the Graduate School of International Policy and Management (GSIPM), more specifically from the trade policy curriculum. Overall, it serves as an introductory course for undergraduate or prospective graduate students.
The program is not geared towards Monterey Institute students studying trade policy, but rather it may be of interest to MBA candidates or BA and MA students specializing in development, conflict resolution and human rights.
The Peace, Trade & Development program (PTD) is custom designed for upper-level undergraduates, prospective graduate students, and new professionals.
All applicants who have completed (or will complete) at least their sophomore year of undergraduate study and who have completed an introductory course in economics by June of 2014,* are eligible.
