International Economic Policy and Management Concentration

The International Economic Policy and Management concentration prepares students for careers in international agencies, nonprofit organizations, international business and finance, and government. Students develop proficiency in international trade, finance, and economic policy analysis, giving them the conceptual and technical skills needed to understand the complex forces that drive international economic activity in this era of globalization. Course work in political economy and international relations provides students with the training to understand how the international political system and governmental institutions affect national security and foreign economic policies, and to contend with increasingly complex governance issues, such as corruption and human rights.
