This concentration in the Professional Master's in Global Affairs is for students who aim to become future risk managers and corporate citizenship professionals. This program will be a fully-online program beginning in Fall 2019.
What You'll Learn
Through this program, students will learn how to develop corporate strategies to manage risks and build stakeholder relationships.
The curriculum includes foundational courses necessary to understand global economic, political, and demographic trends, as well as courses emphasizing policy analysis. Courses in economics, quantitative and research methods, and writing and presentation skills provide our students with additional academic and professional preparation.
Most unique to our curriculum is a Capstone Project whereby students work in partnership with a corporation, non-profit organization, or government agency/international institution on a topic of mutual interest. The entire curriculum is supplemented with professional development seminars that provide additional skills in areas such as career services, leadership, interviewing, and grant writing.
Gain A Competitive Edge
Professional Master's in Global Affairs offers intensive instruction in US Department of State designated strategic languages, such as Arabic, French, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
These languages are critical for US national security as well as commercial relations and economic competitiveness. The current demand for proficient speakers of these languages greatly exceeds the number of speakers available in the US.
By having proficiency in one of these target languages, students greatly enhance their marketability when seeking employment opportunities.
