Thunderbird School of Global Management

Certificate of Advanced Global Studies

Rising seniors with at least a 3.3 GPA may enroll in the first semester of the master of arts in global affairs or master of science in global management. Successful completion of 12 credits with at least a 3.0 GPA will earn the student a powerful postgraduate credential even before completion of Dickinson’s undergraduate program: the certificate in advanced global studies.

Dickinson students who have earned the certificate in advanced global studies are guaranteed admission to the second term of master of arts in global affairs or master of science in global management.

Dickinson students who do not participate in the certificate in advanced global-studies program are granted preference in admission to the master of arts and master of science at the Thunderbird School of Global Management.
