MIB Curriculum

Finance ClassThe MIB is a unique hybrid of a business degree and an international affairs degree. This two-year interdisciplinary program allows students to gain traditional business skills as well as the international knowledge necessary for working in a global business environment. The integrated MIB curriculum ensures that students not only understand how companies operate, but also the complex context in which they operate.

Core Curriculum

All MIB students gain a foundation of skills through a series of required core classes in business, international affairs, and regional studies, offered both in English and in the native language of the region.

Electives and Specializations

Fletcher students may also cross-register at the graduate schools of Tufts and Harvard Universities or pursue a semester-long international exchange program.
