No GRE/GMAT Scores Required.

Today’s leaders require more than traditional MBA skills. They need to understand that business doesn’t operate in a vacuum, and success is dependent on a leader’s comfort with global complexities.

Similar to a global MBA, the online Master of Global Business Administration (GBA) from The Fletcher School at Tufts University provides a multidisciplinary curriculum that covers international business, economics, law, and policy. You will graduate with traditional MBA core competencies, contextual intelligence, and the ability to understand how the global context can impact your business and career.

“I was drawn to the GBA program after traveling and working in Asia and seeing how global our economy has become. I reached a point in my career where I wanted to get my MBA, but the GBA caught my attention—I knew Fletcher’s reputation, and the global nature of the GBA program will provide a unique perspective that other programs may not.”
