Established in 1933 as the first exclusively graduate school of international affairs in the United States, The Fletcher School faculty is multi-disciplinary, with a focus on preparing tomorrow’s leaders with a global perspective. The School undertakes research and prepares masters and doctoral students to use the latest political, business, economic, and legal thinking, among others, to generate pragmatic policies or make executive decisions that will successfully shape global events. Tufts University is a world-renowned research university dedicated to the creation and application of knowledge.
The Fletcher School’s Master of Global Business Administration is an online program that combines core business courses with international relations, economics, and law courses. Students in the program are mid-career, averaging 38 years old, and they come from a wide array of sectors including business, NGOs, military, and public service.
