Broader than an MBA and more focused than a degree in international affairs, the Master's in International Commerce and Policy (ICP) at the Schar School will immerse you in the nexus of business, economics, international relations, and public policy.
No other school in the Washington, D.C. area offers a program like this one. As a student in the Master’s in International Commerce and Policy program, you will develop the skills and expertise in global finance, investment, trade, and development to excel and lead in the public and private sectors, multinational organizations, NGO’s, nonprofits, and consulting firms.
The international commerce and policy program at George Mason University's Schar School of Policy and Government is an innovative master’s degree program for current and aspiring private and public sector professionals who seek the knowledge and skills to be effective in an increasingly complex world marketplace. Designed to provide the practical tools needed to compete in the global economy, this interdisciplinary program explores the way business, technology, law, economics, and public policy affect complex cross-border activities. Unlike traditional international affairs programs, the Master's in International Commerce and Policy program focuses on international economic issues such as global trade and investment. It is also distinguished from an MBA program by providing training in the political, technological, cultural, and social aspects of the global economy.
