Apply for the Global Leadership Program: Your Alternate 601

Please note that the following post reflects expired term dates and deadlines. Please check the GradBlog for updated information about the Global Leadership Program in the 2017-2018 academic year.  

Attention MBA Students!

There is an alternate 601 available for eligible students:

THE GLOBAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM (GLP)
OPPORTUNITY FOR Fall 2016 – Winter 2017 – NOVEMBER to MAY

APPLICATION DEADLINE:  May 16th, 2016

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 the 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, India and China.

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 of the client site in May. There are no exceptions to these requirements.

The GLP application form can be found here.  Submissions should include:

  • a copy of undergraduate and MBA transcripts
  • a copy of your GMAT score
  • an up-to-date c.v.
  • your business headshot
  • a cover letter explaining why you are interested, what you expect to get out of your participation and what you will contribute to the group.Please submit applications by May 16th, 2016 to glp@schulich.yorku.ca; they aim to make selection decisions and notify students within the subsequent three weeks.
