Program Description:

The objective of the certificate programs is to provide research and analytical skills in the national and supranational relationships between the state and the market, the ramifications of economic policies on sociopolitical development, and the consequences of sociopolitical and environmental policies on economic and cultural transformations. The IPE track will emphasize the macro dimensions of the role of the state and the market in the international political economy of development, trade, investment, and finance with a specific country or region focus. The MIPER Program will specialize in the role of a specific natural resource sector in interstate relations and global contexts of trade, finance, investment, technology transfer, and environmental concerns. There are four clusters of fields in which the student can specialize: International Political Economy of a Region; Economic and Political Geography of World Resources; Global Environmental Policy; and International Political Risk Assessment and Mitigation.
