Global Leadership Cohort

Global Leadership

The GLC aims to develop competencies to work effectively in culturally dynamic organizations comprised of diverse teams, individuals and systems. The ability to lead and realize desired changes, motivate, resolve differences and coach others to greater performance and development are characteristics of today’s global leader.

The GLC draws from valuable research, theory, and diagnostic tools from world re-known experts in the field of leadership, organizational behavior, and culture. Classes are aimed at developing the knowledge and abilities to lead in organizations where cultural diversity (i.e., national, regional, ethnic, gender, generational, disciplinary) is high and the competing interests of people and organizational demands are complex enough that they are not resolved with traditional or ‘one best solution’ approaches.

Classes are a combination of in-person and Zoom sessions, and include assigned readings and assessments with regular feedback, dialogue and activities for reflection and testing of knowledge.

Admission to the cohort requires supervisory approval and is open to all MC employees—faculty, staff. The final class is for Project Presentations and a graduation ceremony.

The application deadline is October 27, 2023.
