Semester of Entry

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.  

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.

In between residencies, you’ll learn through a combination of real-time lectures, online coursework, and group discussions. This component of the program is entirely virtual, so you can complete your studies from your home or office.

You’ll leave the program with the strategic thinking and global perspective needed to thrive as an innovative and practiced leader in the higher education space.
