The Global Trade & Development program (GTD) is custom designed for upper-level undergraduate students, prospective graduate students, and beginning professionals interested in increasing their knowledge of global trade and development issues.
Over a four-week period, this program will expose participants to an integrated curriculum covering trade and trade policy, development strategies and practice, and their overlap and interactions with other crucial global issues, such as the environment.
Program content is delivered by policy and business faculty at the Monterey Institute and covers the economic underpinnings of global trade, laws and institutions related to this field, and the relationship between trade and international development issues ranging from the environment to labor standards. Instructional modules include both lectures and "hands-on" learning from case studies, simulations, and group discussions.
Class meets July 26 through August 19, 2010 and the cost of the program is $2,500, although scholarships are available to outstanding students in the Davis United World College Scholars Program.
