Custom Group Certificate Programs for Students

Leveraging our West Coast location and unmatched access to internationally renowned faculty who integrate rigorous scholarship with an enthusiasm for teaching and active engagement in and out of the classroom, GLI has welcomed thousands of international and domestic students to UC San Diego in custom group programs.

Anchored in the School of Global Policy and Strategy, GLI is uniquely positioned to develop programs in collaboration with other academic departments and programs across the university. Each program is tailored to address the group’s learning objectives to provide the desired combination of coursework, student seminars (site visits and field trips) and presentations. GLI works with each group to determine the program duration and daily schedule.

Examples of custom programs GLI has developed are as follows:

  • Leadership Development
  • International Business and Management
  • International Economics and Finance
  • Global Business Strategy
  • Engineering and Technology
  • Biotechnology and Life Sciences
  • Health Innovation
  • Communication and Culture
  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Pre-college Academic Preparation

Pricing will vary based on the number of instructional contact hours and student seminars requested as well as the extent that GLI is involved in organizing non-curricular aspects of the program, such as cultural activities, housing, meals or transportation. GLI also offers online programs with Remote Synchronous Teaching so students and instructors are online and interacting at the same time.
