The Master of Global Business Administration (GBA) is an online international business degree from Tufts University for experienced professionals interested in earning international management credentials. This degree combines business and international affairs courses that will expand knowledge of geopolitics, global security, economic policy, and law and regulations. This unique program builds the same core business skills as a traditional MBA but also offers the knowledge, tools, and credentials needed to understand how business strategies are implemented in the international environment. The curriculum begins with two core courses, Corporate Finance in Global Capital Markets and International Strategy and Innovation; students then complete electives in these areas:
- Business Foundations
- Understanding the Global Context
- International Law
- Analytical Tools for Decision-Making
Courses prepare students to work as leaders across international borders, tackling complex challenges found in the modern world. Graduates have a flexible, wide-ranging knowledge base that helps them advance in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.
