Language of Instruction: English
Within the context of an increasingly interdependent world, the Global Leadership program helps participants understand how global leaders make decisions and how to leverage that understanding to succeed in academic and professional settings. With an emphasis on inquiry based instruction, project-based learning, and cross-functional teams, this program combines a carefully crafted sequence of content-rich, interactive classroom sessions with visits to research facilities, corporate environments, non-profit settings, and civic functions that allow each participant to experience globalization in authentic ways. Considerable emphasis is given to the development of soft skills sought by employers such as collaboration, active listening, creative problem solving, cultural responsiveness, ethics and personal integrity.
In addition to the academic content, all CU Global Connect programs include recreational activities and cultural visits. On Campus, you’ll have access to the activities at the Fike Recreation Center, Underground Rec Center, and South Carolina Botanical Gardens and Geological Museum. On weekends and select evenings, you’ll enjoy visits to Atlanta (home of the 1996 Summer Olympics), historic Greenville, SC, local concerts and festivals, and the famous Blue Ridge Mountains for hiking and a waterfall tour.
