Register for one or both courses that are currently available for enrollment:
  • Cross-Cultural Leadership (Core Course)
    Harness the power of culture and community to help create high-achieving teams and organizations. This course is about leading change in a dynamic world. It is designed to help students understand the tensions and harmonies between leadership and culture, identity and innovation. How can leaders tap into people’s deep desires to improve their lives, find purpose, and help others? How does culture function as a way to unite—or separate—people? And how can we responsibly manage change and innovation on glocal and local levels?
    Faculty-led discussions and workshops Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Fridays

  • Women & Innovation (Elective)
    Building the pipeline of women leaders and innovators. The purpose of this course is to analyze the roles, responsibilities, and expectations of women in leadership positions. Current issues and trends will be examined from historical, sociological, political, and ethical perspectives. Why does women’s leadership matter? Do women have an identifiably different way of leading? What structural/institutional/cultural obstacles do women face? We have the unique opportunity to intermix classroom learning with meetings with real world entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs who are creating systemic change to business and society. 
    Faculty-led discussions and workshops Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays

Courses blend virtual self-paced online learning, virtual faculty-led discussions, and virtual workshops with entrepreneurs. Want to take both courses? You can!

Who are these courses for?

Undergraduate and graduate students looking to set themselves apart, learn leading-edge trends of leadership and innovation, engage directly with entrepreneurs, and build a global network of peers.

Who is eligible to enroll?

The uniqueness of the courses is the wide range of cultures and backgrounds represented. We welcome:
