Global Leadership Programme (GLP)

SUMMER SCHOOL: JULY 5TH
TO JULY 13TH 2024

The School was created to identify, attract, train and assist future servant leaders, ensuring that they are qualified to steer society through an extraordinarily profound, epochal period of change.

finding creative solutions to the complex problems that affect our lives within the framework of Catholic social teaching

The Global Leadership Programme or GLP is, then, a new, excellence–based, formative itinerary, providing a global vision for the development of community leadership which stresses problem solving and a commitment to seek answers in the furtherance of the common good.

The Programme is structured as a Diploma (equivalent to a Minor Degree) offered by Francisco de Vitoria University worth 48 credits spread over three years.

The mission of the GLP’s backers is to drive the adoption of the Programme by other Catholic universities in the medium term. The intention in the meantime is to enter into partnerships with leading public and private institutions making outstanding intellectual and practical contributions to the common good both Europe– wide and internationally.

The Programme also offers the option of joining two complementary Diploma courses, each worth 16 credits:

  • Intermediate level “Leadership for the Global Common Good” aimed at postgraduate students without professional experience, who may matriculate from the second year of the GL Programme.
  • Advanced level “Leadership for the Global Common Good” aimed at postgraduate students with professional experience, who may matriculate from the third year of the GL Programme.
Methodology

In order to foster the development of global vocations, the Programme will follow a hybrid format including both online sessions over the course of the academic year and a classroom summer school preceded by kick–off days.

Learning will be systematized through an inductive method, which involves setting an annual global challenge and addressing one aspect of the same and the relevant technical knowledge and skills each week, applying an Expanded Reasoning methodology to foster creative thinking.

Students will work on each challenge in international multidisciplinary teams made up of five members applying design thinking tools, accompanied by a mentor and an academic tutor to create a space within which to seek effective solutions to complex problems.

The Programme is in line with the existing European model for Bachelors and Masters degrees, both in the 3–2 and 4–1 format.
