GMAP students in the classroom
GMAP is the premier leadership training program for international executives and global leaders. GMAP provides students with a 360-degree approach to understanding international affairs: a rich interdisciplinary curriculum, team-based collaboration, and class composition designed to ensure a broad range of geographical and professional perspectives. GMAP is a one-year graduate degree program leading to a Master of Arts in International Relations.
GMAP teaches students to explore the complex and nuanced intersections among the worlds of international business, international organizations and NGOs, and governments. Participants include a wide variety of international affairs professionals from all regions of the world with diverse interests and professional backgrounds.
The program provides the signature Fletcher experience. The different calendar options and hybrid learning structure allow our students the flexibility to enroll in GMAP when it best fits their busy professional (and personal) life. Students have the option to start in July or January. The GMAP year is comprised of three terms, and each term includes a reading period, a 2-week residency session, and 11 weeks of Internet-mediated instruction. Two residencies are held at the Fletcher campus, and one residency is held at an international location outside of the United States. The GMAP hybrid learning structure of 3 residencies and 33 weeks of Internet-mediated instruction offers the ability to earn an executive graduate degree without career interruption or relocation.
