World Economic Forum Global Leadership Fellowship Programme 2019 (Fully Funded Executive Master’s in Global Leadership)

Application Deadline: Ongoing

The Global Leadership Fellows Programme (GLFP) of the World Economic Forum is a commitment to making this happen, by developing System’s Leaders for Public-Private Cooperation.

A multi-journey of on-the-job learning, academic training, individual development and coaching.

The enormous scale, complexity and urgency of the challenges facing the world today call for more responsive and responsible leadership. This means leaders who have the vision and values, the character and competence, to shape the future while also balancing the polarities between short- and long-term goals.

Developing leaders who can understand and navigate complex, dynamic systems is one of the best ways of addressing the future’s many challenges. Systems leadership is about cultivating a shared vision for change – working together with all stakeholders of global society. It’s about empowering widespread innovation and action based on mutual accountability and collaboration.

The Global Leadership Fellows Programme is a multi-year programme that combines intensive on-the-job experience, an innovative learning curriculum, personalized coaching and mentoring and access to an extensive network of alumni.

WEF are looking for dynamic, engaged and driven individuals who possess a high degree of intellectual curiosity and service-oriented humility; an entrepreneur in the global public interest with a profound sense of purpose regardless of the scale and scope of the challenge.

During the Fellowship Programme, you will foster your strengths and address areas of development. You will prepare for leadership in both public and private sectors, and to work across all spheres of global society: business, government, civil society and academia. You will learn through peers, projects, passion and play, all within an immensely diverse community of individuals united in their drive and commitment to improve the state of the world.
