Economic, social, and technological disruption is transforming the global workplace and placing demands on senior leaders to stay one step ahead. Chicago Booth’s Global Leadership Institute (GLI) is designed to provide the framework and tools necessary to innovate, lead through change, motivate teams, and enhance the management skills of leaders across a range of industries and sectors.

Designed for executives including family business owners, engineers, IT professionals, lawyers, government officials, and business leaders, GLI is a comprehensive management program that addresses the talent and development needs of global professionals.

Program Format

GLI is designed to offer the most learning options for a busy global leader—with an in-person, online, and experiential education. The program is held in Chicago over two non-consecutive weeks, which allows leaders to put classroom insights into practice between sessions.

In addition, the program features online learning modules so leaders may continue to collaborate and network virtually with other participants and faculty members. Group and individual projects, as well as experiential learning, bring The Chicago Approach to life. Participants will experience immersive learning with Chicago-based company visits, hearing from industry leaders, and learning from each other.
