In our adaptive online courses, you will learn from experienced professionals, gain expertise in cutting-edge technologies, and develop vital leadership skills.

Here are a few reasons that 98% of our our alumni would recommend us to their colleagues.

Engage Industry Leaders in Small Class Sizes

Industry experts with extensive working experience lead our courses. These accomplished professionals understand the challenges of modern industry and draw on real-world expertise and connections to help advance your career goals.

Small class sizes mean our faculty offer truly personal instruction. Students have ongoing access to instructors and gain comprehensive, individualized feedback.

We equip students for success in thriving, global industries. Executives from leading companies serve on our program advisory councils and provide input for course and program needs. Our students focus on applying the skills they learn to innovative work in their fields. You will put your new knowledge to work immediately.

Learn Online, Quality Unsurpassed

Our courses adapt to your busy schedule. Students work online to collaborate with other working professionals, interact with industry leaders, and benefit from an extensive student support system.  Brandeis GPS's highly interactive courses are based on quality standards and best practices for course development.

Apply, or Just Take a Course

At Brandeis GPS, students can take two courses without officially enrolling, so you can see which of our programs are right for you.

Because we value your professional experience and because GPS programs offer highly specialized degrees, GRE and GMAT scores are not required for admission.

We have designed each Brandeis GPS master’s degree to ensure clear learning outcomes. These degree-level skills support the broader goals of the Division of GPS, which themselves support the overarching educational goals of Brandeis University. In fact, you can expect each of our classes to clearly articulate course-level and weekly objectives that contribute to the core skills of your degree.
