Business today face challenges that are complex, global and often appear intractable. The speed and scale of change are shaking traditional economics and management theories at their core. Fresh ideas are needed to challenge business orthodoxy and help companies achieve sustainable growth.

The Global Leaders Programme (GLP) is internationally recognised for its intellectual rigour, beyond-classroom methodology and its output driven approach to leadership development.

MODULE ONE: Challenging Business Orthodoxy

Module One facilitates a greater awareness of the drivers of change in today's world, engaging participants in candid discussions and debates related to the role of business in society and the changing realities in different political and economic systems. 

The core curriculum in Module One conveys a new narrative on economic development and the role of different sectors in society. The course paints a vivid picture of the world we live in based on facts, figures and examples and asks hard questions about the nature of globalisation. It presents the need to reshape economic systems and for the roles of government, business, civil society and media in our societies to be more aligned with our new realities. Core topics include:

Participants are encouraged to think critically about pricing, externalities, the role of the state and ethical dilemmas in business, among other topics as well as to question their own assumptions and challenge conventional notions of global business.

MODULE TWO: Field Project in India

More than half of India’s vast population of 1.3 billion is younger than 25. The country faces the significant challenge of harnessing this generation as a productive work force. An estimated 200 million young people must be trained by 2022 and skills training is today a major policy issue.

In addition, the informal sector accounts for 90% of non-agricultural employment, making it one of the largest informal economies in the world. Informal workers are therefore denied access to government protection and regulation.


Participants on the GLP will work with LabourNet, a professional social enterprise based out of Bangalore, India and dedicated to providing work-integrated job training to informal workers in construction, manufacturing, textiles and cosmetics/beauty. The group of global executives will propose develop strategic recommendations and a business model to support the socio-economic livelihoods of people in urban and rural India through education, employment and entrepreneurship.
