GLP Application Form – 2019-2020

Deadline: June 23

What is the GLP?

The Global Leadership Program (GLP) is an alternate 601 project and involves creating a market entry strategy and execution plan for a foreign company considering the North American or World markets.  Students work in a team composed of five Schulich students, plus five students from a partnering school.  They work extensively using on-line communication; as well, they are required to travel to each others’ countries for more intensive work.  The program covers transportation and accommodation costs.  This year’s projects are focused on a range of countries including Israel and India.

MBA students eligible to register for “601” (MGMT 6100) are now invited to apply for this year’s projects.  Students apply individually and are selected on the basis of academic excellence, work ethic, and group skills.  The GLP admissions committee constructs groups from among the successful applicants.

The GLP is a more intensive project than the regular “601”.  The program runs from late November until late May and students are required to commit for the duration of the project.  Moreover, students are required to travel to the home country (often Israel) of the client site in May.  There are no exceptions to these requirements.

How do I apply?

Submissions should include a copy of undergraduate and MBA transcripts, copy of your GMAT score, up-to-date c.v., business headshot and a cover letter explaining why you are interested, what do you expect to get out of your participation and what you will contribute to the group.  Please submit applications by  June 23th, 2019 to glp@schulich.yorku.ca; we aim to make selection decisions and notify students within the subsequent two weeks.
