Double Degree IDEA-MIBF

We offer a double degree program that may be of particular interest to students seeking to specialize in international finance and banking in a fully international academic and professionalizing environment.

The MIBF curriculum provides internationally-focused training in the core areas of banking and finance and also covers related topics in accounting and regulation. MIBF graduates typically take on careers in large international financial service firms.

Students participating in the IDEA-MIBF Double Degree Program benefit from career placement services at both instituions and receive two degrees upon graduation. Graduates of this program can also seek admission in the IDEA PhD Program. IDEA students can apply to the IDEA-MIBF Double Degree Program at any time during their studies, including when they first apply to the IDEA Program.
