Glocal students follow a number of professional tracks after finishing the program. Some alumni find positions with organizations working in the developing world, while others stay in their home countries to pursue working with marginalized communities closer to home. A few of our students have developed projects out of their own initiative and the initiative of communities with whom they work.
Studies are offered in a non-research track only. The program is generally completed in 18 months, and spans 3 consecutive semesters. During the first semester, students focus on academic theory based around issues in development and take courses such as the Ethics of Development, Demographics, Economics of Development, Urban Planning, among many others. During the second semester, in addition to gaining further academic knowledge, students prepare for their internship.

Glocal aims to produce qualified professionals to work with underdeveloped communities throughout the world.
