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 nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and governments. Participants include a wide variety of international affairs professionals from all regions of the world with diverse interests and professional backgrounds.

Three live residencies: one in person at Fletcher in August, one in person in an international location in January and one virtual in April. The in-person residencies will be 7-9 days in duration and the virtual residency will be 5 days. Concluding celebration at the end of the program on-campus in July is optional. During the 12-month program, students complete 11 courses and a master's capstone project. GMAP provides the signature Fletcher experience, with the added flexibility of pursuing the degree without career interruption or relocation.
