The Master of Arts in International Business and Policy (MA-IBP) provides professionals with a foundation in global business and principled leadership alongside a nuanced understanding of the non-market forces that influence international, economic and political relations. Offered by Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service and McDonough School of Business, this one-year graduate program consists of a series of six intensive modules — two of which are held abroad — along with two online courses designed to accommodate the schedules of working professionals.

We are pleased to offer an application fee waiver for select events to those who apply after attending an event.*
