The Global Perspective Residencies Program aims to empower and prepare students for success and leadership in engagement in foreign environments and with international counterparts. The residencies bring you face to face with senior leaders in politics, advocacy, and business. The program will help you learn how to navigate the corridors of power in the most important regions of the globe.

To provide an insider's perspective on the countries' systems of politics, communications, and advocacy, each residency includes:

  • Four-week online coursework
  • One-week onsite program

"I have benefitted tremendously from my trips to Belgium, Brazil, Canada, and China and cherish the indelible memories I have accumulated along the way. As a consequence of my experiences related to the program, having completed my graduate degree, I have endeavored to continue my education for the sole purpose of learning a foreign language. Furthermore, it has encouraged me to increase my personal travel abroad with the aim of viewing the human condition through a multicultural lens."
