Global Young Professional Program

The GYPP Program serves as a bridge program for young professionals before applying or transferring to graduate or professional degree programs at MSU or elsewhere. GYPP offers various levels of English language training and a customized academic program in conjunction with academic units on campus.


The GYPP is ideal for young professionals who have fewer than 5 years of work experience and are looking for an opportunity to enhance their employment prospects, either by gaining American higher education qualification, deepening their college experience, or by attaining new professional skill sets in English language, communication, creativity and leadership.

We provide focused learning opportunities to support your high academic ambition with a customized program ranging from 3 months to one year. Depending on your English or academic levels, we offer various levels of English language training and a tailored academic program in conjunction with relevant academic departments on campus. You may take our VIPP courses, regular ELC (English Language Center) courses, and/or regular MSU academic courses, depending on your needs.

Upon successful completion of GYPP, you will be awarded a Global Professional Certificate, and be better prepared to create new opportunities for your career. GYPP alumni include professionals from Hospitality Business, Education, Management and Communications.
