The growth of study abroad and international education programs has fueled a demand for professionals with advanced education management training.

The joint BA in International Policy and MA in International Education Management (Joint BA/MAIEM) prepares graduates to design and lead educational programs that foster global competence, strengthen intercultural communication, and help the world’s people work together to solve challenging problems.

You must transfer in 60 credits from an accredited college or university and complete five semesters of coursework at the Institute in addition to a professional practicum in the sixth semester. Course work has a two-part focus:

  1. Developing an understanding of global issues and policy on wide-ranging topics including international economics, environmental sustainability, nuclear nonproliferation, and human rights.
  2. Designing and managing educational programs that help others to learn about global issues and work effectively in multicultural teams. Coursework in this area includes educational program design, assessment of learning, educational management,  intercultural communication and training, and equity and inclusion.
