Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply?
You are invited to add the BGM Certificate through the FSB Change of Program Form. Your request will be reviewed by Ashley Jarvis, Academic Advisor. We will be in touch with you regarding your admission into the program within two weeks of receiving your request to add the certificate.
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.

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.

There are no special costs associated with participation in the program. In planning for your overseas experience, you will work closely with Ashley Jarvis 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.
