GMAP provides every student with a curriculum of the highest academic rigor. Every aspect of GMAP has been designed to help participants gain a 360-degree perspective on international affairs. This applies to all facets of the program, from its curriculum and faculty to its class makeup and emphasis on team collaboration.


Most degree programs are strictly discipline focused, unlike most international careers. GMAP, like the broader Fletcher curriculum from which it is derived, recognizes that the cultural, historical and environmental forces that shape international affairs are deeply connected. The GMAP curriculum includes all aspects of international affairs that leaders in any discipline must master. It sets students at the nexus of international affairs, business, law, and development. All GMAP students enroll in the same eleven core courses on the same schedule throughout their year of study. Additionally, students complete a master's capstone project.
