Discourse & Repartée Graduate School of Translation, Interpretation and Language Education MA Program in International Education Management Begins Fall 2012 By Lauren Brereton Starting in fall 2012, Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS) will be introducing a new master’s degree program called International Education Management (IEM). IEM will be part of the Graduate School of International Policy and Management and will be spearheaded by Katherine Punteney, Ed.D. Dr. Punteney was hired by MIIS to develop the IEM program along with other current MIIS faculty. IEM is a 42-credit degree program that is designed to be completed in three semesters with a culminating 4-6 month practicum. MIIS has an increasing partnership with the C.V. Starr- Middlebury Schools Abroad. Many of the students will have the opportunity to complete their practicum at one of the thirty-eight locations in Argentina, Brazil, Cameroon, Chile, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan , Mexico, Russia, Spain, Uruguay as well as in other locations throughout the US and the world. The first question one asks is: “What is International Education Management?” According to Dr. Punteney: “While International Education means many things to different people, for us, it is not work with development projects, nor work in international schools, nor formal education around the world; it is working with exchange programs, study abroad programs, working in research, policy and government programs.”“ It is ultimately a way to make the world a better place through fostering cross-cultural understanding and enabling individuals who access cultural exchange programs to feel like they are part of a global community.” Graduates of the IEM program will continue on to careers in study abroad and education abroad, language program administration, international student scholar advising, professional training programs and work with government agencies.
