Led by Senior Assistant Dean Shruti Rana, the Global Leaders & Professionals Program focuses on the nuts-andbolts of landing your dream internship or post-graduate position through networking and mentorship.
Students also participate in professional skills development workshops, work one-on-one with career coaches and professional mentors, and meet with community and global leaders to identify specific career goals and start putting them into action.
“We pair GLPP students with professional mentors and work with them to connect the language, critical thinking, and other global skills learned in the classroom to the employers and career paths where these skills are in greatest demand. Through the program, students gain the foundation they need to achieve their goals of becoming leaders in fields ranging from business to public interest work.” —
