I would read these links about both Columbia University in the City of NY (not in the State of NY).
Columbia doesn't have a degree in international relations however you can major in Political Science.
The University of Pennsylvania has the Huntsman Program which is a specialized dual degree program in Int'l Relations and Business.
As a Class of 2025 admit, I would say you may find the Core Curriculum requirement very challenging at Columbia because it's a deep dive into Literature, Ethics, Arts, STEM courses, and everyone has to take the "CORE" regardless of their major. I only say this because if you are not comfortable reading many many difficult books in a short period of time, it may be daunting as an Int'l student. I posted some links for you to read about the Core Curriculum.
At other wonder IVY League schools, you do not have to do a core curriculum.
Those would be Brown, Yale, Dartmouth,
At Harvard and Princeton and UPenn, and Cornell you have to fulfill a general requirements list of classes.
Hope that is helpful.
