International business at Fletcher is distinctive, with an emphasis on core management issues that are at the intersection of global business and international affairs. In addition to students graduating with a Master of Law and Diplomacy, who study business as part of an International Business concentration, Fletcher awards a Master of International Business degree that combines a rigorous business education with a graduate degree in international affairs. The Institute for Business in the Global Context, “where the world of business meets the world”, is an active center within the School which offers a portfolio of education, research, conferences and other activities.  The study of business at Fletcher is, therefore, inherently global and inter-disciplinary.
