Global Pathway Program

The Global Pathway Program (GPP) is a one-, two- or three-quarter program offering a bridge to Western’s undergraduate programs or to the MBA program. GPP students are conditionally admitted to Western, as their English proficiency does not meet Western’s direct admission requirements.
Faculty and staff help you adapt to university life and U.S. culture and gain strategies for academic success. After completion, you can continue to undergraduate studies or the MBA program with the confidence to engage and succeed.

Undergraduate GPP

For the undergraduate GPP, you will take 10-15 credits of IEP courses per quarter. You will work with an advisor to select pre-approved courses for academic credits. Over the course of a three-quarter pathway, you will earn 15-20 academic credits that apply towards your degree.

Pre-Masters (MBA) GPP 

For the MBA GPP, you will take between 5-20 credits of IEP courses, depending on your entry level. In the final quarter of the pathway, you will take three pre-determined undergraduate Business and Math classes totaling 12 credits to prepare for the MBA program.
