Global Leadership Certificate

The Global Leadership Certificate (GLC), offered by the Center for Leadership, is a program that will help you develop tools and skills that will help you lead and communicate effectively on a global scale with people from a variety of cultures and experiences. As our society becomes increasingly globalized the importance of globalized leadership becomes more relevant. The GLC workshops incorporates our global citizenship competency into your leadership toolkit.
