Think Outside the MBA to Meet the Challenges of a Global Economy

In an increasingly competitive business world, leaders of all types of organizations need to be able to work across borders, disciplines, and issues to strategize effectively, anticipate risk, and make decisions with agility.

Like a global MBA program, the online Master of Global Business Administration (GBA) from The Fletcher School at Tufts University blends the management knowledge of an MBA with an understanding of the political, economic, and legal factors that affect how businesses operate. You will graduate armed with the tools to ensure your organization is ready to handle complex risks and opportunities.

This program can be completed in 24 months on a part-time schedule (recommended for full-time working professionals) and 16 months on a full-time schedule.
