Joint Master of Arts in International Policy and Development/Master of Arts in International Trade and Economic Diplomacy

Middlebury College

Get the sophisticated knowledge, skills, and tools related to international development and practical global trade.

Trade can affect employment, investment, economic growth, and educational opportunities in either positive or negative ways. A degree program that combines trade and development equips students to analyze policies and design initiatives that can mitigate some of the unfavorable effects of trade policies while amplifying positive outcomes.

If you’re interested in a professional career at the intersection of development and trade, you can earn both a Master of International Policy and Development (MAIPD) and a Master of Arts in International Trade and Economic Diplomacy (MAITED) in five semesters.

Career-Oriented Options

Although you must select a specific degree when you apply, the International Policy and Development (MAIPD) and Public Administration (MPA) programs share a common faculty and core curriculum. This gives you the flexibility to explore both areas of study and then choose either the Joint MAIPD/MAITED or Joint MPA/MAITED by your third semester.
