What is MA-IBP?
Offered by Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service and McDonough School of Business, this one-year interdisciplinary program blends the strengths of the oldest and most highly regarded school of foreign service in the world with a top-tier business school that has proven experience in educating global, principled leaders who serve business and society.
The curriculum provides an understanding of the frameworks and mechanisms that drive business and international relations and explores those concepts in contemporary global issues. The program is delivered in six one-week modules (four on-campus and two international) and two four-week online courses over a 12-month period.
