The Global Leaders Programme will give you the opportunity to learn and embrace different cultures from all over the world. You'll see how businesses operate in different environments and apply the skills you've learnt throughout the course in practical international situations. 

The international experiences provided as part of the GLP will give you the chance to create important career and personal networks around the globe.
