Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply?

You are invited to apply online. Your application will be reviewed by Emily Akil, Assistant Director of Global Business Programs. We will be in touch with you regarding your admission into the program within two weeks of receiving your application.

Is Business in the Global Market a major?

No. Rather, Business in the Global Market is a certificate program that enhances your business major and your Miami degree. Upon completion of BGM, you will receive a certificate, as well as a notation on your academic transcript identifying you to future employers as a specialist in Business in the Global Market.

The program complements any business major you select, giving you international business expertise and experience in a particular region of the world. Program requirements will not interfere with the requirements of your chosen major.

What does it cost to participate in Business in the Global Market?

There are no special costs associated with participation in the program. In planning for your overseas experience, you will work closely with Emily Akil to ensure that you are prepared, both academically and financially. Scholarships are available through FSB, Miami and externally for study.

What if I change my mind?

If you decide not to pursue a business degree at Miami, or if you decide that Business in the Global Market is not for you, there is no penalty for withdrawing from the program.
