Ready to Get Down to Business?

You will be once you complete the specialized Global Strategic Communication program. Global Strategic Communication takes students around the globe without leaving their homes. It educates and informs on how successful organizations do business worldwide, enabling students to communicate effectively on a global scale.

This program will teach you how to communicate effectively across cultures and geographies, preparing you to work for companies that participate in the global economy with a diverse workforce.

The Global Strategic Communication online graduate program prepares students for business communication on a global scale.  It does so through three important pillars: business acumen, cultural sophistication, and powerful messaging skills. All courses are 100% online and feature outstanding instructors.

How does it work?

The program consists of 36 credit hours that can be finished in under just two years for full-time students! In these courses, students will learn the business strategies and communication skills that are necessary to work for companies that participate in the global economy. The courses are 100% online, so students can achieve their Master’s without compromising their everyday lifestyles! Taught by industry professionals and the outstanding University of Florida faculty, students are prepared for global communication through three very important pillars.

What are these Pillars?

Well, we can’t give away all of our program secrets but I guess we can give you a quick rundown. The GSC program is guided by three core class-types: Messaging, Communication, and Culture. These pillars take up 25 credits of classes, leaving the remaining 12 credits to be spent on one of 7 different specializations of your choice!

What Our Alumni Say

I loved the online program. Attending UF was a dream come true for me, and it was only possible through the online program. Additionally, the GSC program was a perfect fit for me. I am now the manager of events and marketing at a nonprofit called The Covering House. There is no doubt in my mind that my master's degree was one reason why I received this position. I was able to jump right in to this job without any trouble, and I firmly believe the education I received through the online program is why I was able to do this.
