The Global Leadership Fellows Programme is co-designed and co-developed in association with some of the world’s foremost experts in leadership, management, organizational behaviour and experiential learning. Fellows are trained at CEIBS, Columbia University, INSEAD, the London Business School, THNK School of Creative Leadership and Innovation and Oxford Saïd School of Business.
As one of the world’s leading and largest graduate business schools, INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas to change lives and transform organizations. A global perspective and cultural diversity are reflected in all aspects of its research and teaching. INSEAD became a pioneer of international business education with the opening of the Fontainebleau campus in Europe in 1960. In 2000, INSEAD opened an Asia campus in Singapore. And in 2007 the school began an association in the Middle East, officially opening the Abu Dhabi campus in 2010. As an educational institution, its mission is to promote a non-dogmatic learning environment that brings together people, cultures and ideas from around the world, changing lives and helping transform organizations through management education. Through teaching, they develop responsible, thoughtful leaders and entrepreneurs who create value for their organizations and their communities. Through research, they expand the frontiers of academic thought and influence business practice.
London Business School is ranked among the top business schools in Europe, and among the top 10 business schools in the world. In 2011, London Business School was ranked number one in the world for its MBA programme by the Financial Times for the third year in a row. The school’s admissions process is highly selective, making it one of the most competitive business schools in the world. It was established in 1964, after the Franks Report recommended the establishment of two business schools, as part of existing universities (London Business School and Manchester Business School), but with considerable autonomy.
For more than 250 years, Columbia University has been a leader in higher education in the US and around the world. At the core of its wide range of academic inquiry is the commitment to attract and engage the best minds in pursuit of greater human understanding, pioneering new discoveries and service to society. Since 1965, Columbia University’s School of the Arts has offered students an unparalleled opportunity for risk-taking, uniquely combining the intellectual rigours of an urban Ivy League institution with the limitless opportunities provided by its location in New York City, one of the great cultural capitals of the world.
The China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) is mainland China’s leading business school, with three programmes globally ranked by the Financial Times. The CEIBS vision is to become the most respected international business school by linking East and West in teaching, research and business practice, and by promoting China’s social and economic development through high-impact knowledge creation and dissemination. CEIBS was established in November 1994 in Shanghai. Based on a campus in the Pudong district of Shanghai, the school is a not-for-profit joint venture established under an agreement between MOFTEC and the European Commission.
