; and Public and NGO Management. Students in the MIB program must complete one of these four International Business Fields of Study along with one International Affairs (MALD/PhD) Field of Study. MIB students must complete a minimum of three course credits in a single field to fulfill the International Business Field of Study requirement. Modular courses (1/2 credit courses) must be matched up to make a full credit. Each field has one required course credit and two elective course credits.

Through petition to the Committee on Student Academic Programs, MALD students may offer one of the MIB International Business Fields of Study. However, it should be noted that in doing so, they are ineligible to officially offer the International Business Relations Field toward their plan of study. Note: MIB students are not permitted to offer the International Affairs Field of Study, International Business Relations, to satisfy one of their field requirements.
