Candidate Profile

The Master in International Relations prepares students to face global challenges with a more sustainable vision of business and project management. It trains students to become influential leaders who can transform and truly make a difference in the public, private, and non-profit sector. This program is designed for recent graduates and early to mid-career professionals with backgrounds in Business, International Relations, Economics, Political Sciences, Law or Social Sciences. Other backgrounds such as Engineering, Finance and Humanities are also welcome.

The Master in International Development is a unique collaboration between IE and the United Nations System Staff College, with a curriculum focused on the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The program also includes soft and hard skills, as well as a Specialization Track. This program is designed for recent graduates and young professionals with backgrounds in International Relations, Economics, Political Sciences, Law or Social Sciences. Other backgrounds such as Engineering, Business, and Humanities are also welcome. 

The Master of Laws, defined by its comparative methodology and international orientation, gives students hands-on experience in skills such as cross-border transactions and transnational law to propel their international ambitions. Students can either specialize in one of three major legal fields—International Business Law, International Dispute Resolution, or Intellectual Property and Technology Law—or earn a General LL.M. that provides an overview of all three fields. A Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from an accredited US law school or a first law degree (JD, LLB, or the equivalent) from a law school in countries other than the United States is required to earn the LL.M degree. Exceptional candidates with backgrounds in Political Science, Economics, History, Criminology, or similar will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for an MsL degree.
