Global Degree Academy

Global Degree was founded in 2014 by Michael Graziano in his attempt to visit all 193 UN nations in 60 months.

After visiting over 100 nations, he noticed the need for a formal travel-study program that allows students to gain valuable life experience through travel while taking advantage of online degrees through top universities. He graduated with his Global Degree in 2019.


Global Degree Academy Is The First Of Its Kind

Students who complete this program will walk away with an array of life experiences, an international network of friends, and a global awareness in their field of study. They also have an environment to study while completing a degree or taking the online courses of their choice.


Our Vision

We will modernize the education model by using the world as a classroom and making global citizens of our students.


Our Mission

We will formally combine travel and education to provide students with an around-the-world learning experience while completing online studies in any subject.


Our Values

  • We are students of the world and subscribe to lifelong study. We are dedicated to our courses, and ourselves.
  • We will treat our peers as a family, the earth as our home, and strangers as friends.
  • We will never jeopardize the safety or reputation of ourselves, others or the Academy.
  • We will accomplish our goals together, share our successes and never let one of us fail alone. We can and will depend on each other.
  • We are fully grown adults and will act as such. We expect the same from our peers.
  • We will not lie or keep secrets. We will quickly and openly work to separate fact from fiction, and honesty will never fall to vulnerability.
  • We will keep our word. We will say what we mean, and do what we say. We trust the word of others to be good.
  • We will stay calm. We will not panic in the face of fear or conflict; instead, we will adapt and overcome.
  • We will develop our abilities and take pride in them. We will set our standards high and our expectations higher.
  • Quitting is never an option. We will always find a way to win, pass, and thrive through our time studying the world.
  • We dream big, and have bigger goals; we are here to study the world and change it for the better.


The Program

We provide the safest, easiest and most immersive form of educational travel by connecting a community of students embarking on the same learning journey. Our expert guides, seasoned academic professors, and international students all share the same inspiring mission: The world is our classroom.


Length Of Itinerary

Students will travel for an average of eight months of the year and spend the remaining four months at home with friends and family to relax, work or finish online courses.

Following graduation, whether you decide to work for a company, create a startup, or continue studies, a Global Degree will give you a competitive edge that is truly world-class.


The Future Global Citizen

After visiting every UN nation and graduating with a Global Degree, it’s safe to say our students have already made an impact on the world. And this is just the beginning…
