United-Nations_Iraq.jpgThe IPE Certificate Program
The IPE Graduate Certificate program is divided into two parts: (1) the first 15-credit hour certificate focuses on the IPE theories, methods, and models; and (2) the second 15-credit hour certificate focuses on specialization, such as regional development (Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Africa, Eurasia, and the Middle East), international or comparative political economy issues, and project specific themes such as trade, finance, the environment, gender, and ethnicity. Admissions requirements are the same as for the degree program.  Please see the MIPER Director for more information.
