Program and Degree
Government agencies, nonprofit organizations or for-profit entities operating internationally hire graduates who are trained to take on complex global issues. The MIAGE degree at the University of Utah trains globally sensitive administrators and employees.
The degree is a 39 credit hour degree program. Students without prior experience with an international organization are also required to complete an internship, for a total of 42 credit hours.
Curriculum is divided into seven core courses and six elective courses. Students also complete a major research project. It is possible under certain circumstances to finish the degree in 18 months.

Students choose 6 elective courses from Accounting, Anthropology, Communications, Economics, Finance, Geography, Management, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Political Science (including Public Administration), Sociology, and Strategy.
Students may also complete an international internship for elective credit (PUBPL 6920 - International Affairs and Global Enterprise Internship.) This is required for students who do not have prior international experience.
MIAGE seeks applicants who desire to complement the knowledge they obtained during their undergraduate studies with a deeper understanding of global enterprises and the legal, political, cultural and socio-economic contexts in which these organizations exist.
