Part-Time Course


The Part-Time Course of Studies is open to all IPED students. It allows a student who is only taking two courses each semester to complete the normal course of studies within two years, including two summers. Part-time students can use their electives to specialize in International Banking and Finance, International and Development Economics, International Development Studies,  or in Global Environmental & Resource Economics.  This course of studies is best suited for members of New York's diplomatic, non-profit, and business communities who must work while pursuing their degrees.
