Our curriculum takes a comprehensive approach to global higher education, examining the field through the lenses of accreditation, compliance, finance, and cultural awareness. Over the course of five semesters, you’ll complete a blend of online coursework and on-site residencies—both within and outside the United States—where you’ll be exposed to some of today’s most critical higher education challenges and opportunities.  

During each one-week residency, you’ll gain hands-on practice working within different geographical and cultural educational frameworks, where you’ll address complexities such as policy and law, ethics, economics, and leadership. You’ll also have opportunities to connect with some of the nation’s leading higher education experts and organizations through real-world client engagements and case studies.
