Young people from all over the world are welcome to apply for the Global Leadership Fellowship Programme at the World Economic Forum. As fellows, participants will benefit from rigorous training through a customized learning programme established in partnership with leading global universities, and will have the opportunity to work on individual development with an experienced executive coach. Throughout the three-year programme, participants can expect to rotate at least once to another role in the Forum giving you the opportunity to experience different parts of the organization. The deadline for applying is 15th of August.
As a fellow, you will learn to manage complexity and ambiguity, work in a fast-paced and dynamic environment, become an agile and resilient leader, earn a Master’s in Systems Leadership, and interact with some of the world’s most influential individuals and institutions.
