GLP Application Form – 2022-2023

Deadline: June 19, 2022

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 online communications, undertaking primary and secondary research, crafting joint presentations, and defending their conclusions and recommendations to the executives of the company. Normally, they are required to travel to each others’ countries for more intensive work. In those cases, the program covers reasonable transportation and accommodation costs.

MBA students eligible to register for the “601” (MGMT 6100) are 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 creates groups from among the successful applicants.

How is the GLP different from a regular Strategy Field Study?

The GLP is a more intensive project than the regular “601”. The program runs from December until late May, and students are required to commit for the duration of the project. Moreover, students are required to travel to the client company’s home country (often Israel) during May. Students that are unable to travel in May should not apply for the GLP.

How do I apply for the GLP?

Complete the application form by Sunday, June 19th, 2022. Be prepared to upload the following:

  • copies of undergraduate and MBA transcripts
  • a copy of your GMAT score
  • an up-to-date resume
  • a brief Statement of Intent that discusses the following:
    • Why do you want to participate in the program?
    • What specific skills you can offer your team and your client?
    • If applicable, what previous experience do you have that makes you a good candidate for the GLP?

Applications are due by June 19th, 2022. We aim to make selection decisions and notify students within the subsequent two weeks.
