The Master of Arts in International Relations & Master of Business Administration (IR/MBA) dual-degree program meets the needs of students seeking careers in administrative management (corporate or nonprofit), consulting, international banking, or finance. Students learn all the essential skills of business management through coursework in the Questrom School of Business and couple that with an understanding of international politics, economics, and security issues learned through coursework in the Pardee School. Students typically receive both degrees in two and a half years.

The IR MA & Master of Business Administration is a joint offering of the Pardee School of Global Studies and the Questrom School of Business. Candidates must submit applications to both Pardee and Questrom separately; only candidates who have admission to both programs can enroll in the dual degree program.
