The Residency Experience
Residencies: Intensive classroom experiences that provide the foundation for building teams and friendships.
Three residency sessions are the core of the GMAP year. Each GMAP course begins with face-to-face sessions with the faculty. Students also engage with classmates and hear the many perspectives that will shape the discussions in the weeks to come. Each residency is two weeks long; total of six weeks of in-person residencies during the GMAP year.

The August and July residencies are held on campus at The Fletcher School, Tufts University. The January residency takes place at an international location (see list below). During the January International Residency, in addition to attending their regular lectures, students will also have the opportunity to connect with Fletcher alumni and learn from local experts, politicians and thought-leaders. Furthermore, GMAP hosts an alumni weekend during the international residencies so as to offer our alumni community the opportunity to meet and interact with one another and the new class, as well as continue their learning through educational seminars.
Thus far, GMAP has hosted international residencies in the following cities:
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Mexico City, Mexico
