You’ll realize the inherent complexities and interconnectedness of the world and you’ll be better prepared to work in a global environment no matter your academic focus, specialty, or career path.

Global Leadership Certificate Program

Our two-year undergraduate certificate prepares students to serve as internationally-minded and skilled leaders in all walks of life (commercial, governmental and nongovernmental, educational, etc.). The GLC certificate is not a degree-granting academic discipline, but a curricular and co-curricular program that complements other disciplines. In this program, you will:
 

  • Learn to think critically and creatively
  • Develop skills to communicate clearly and logically
  • Practice how to be flexible, non-dogmatic, and embrace ambiguity
  • Understand the world's challenging commercial, political, religious, and cultural issues
  • Work in teams comprised of both Ohio University and foreign-based international students on real-world projects, usually with real-world clients (both in the USA and abroad), in a community-based education experience

Professional Development and Experiential Learning Opportunities

The GLC offers many rich experiences and development opportunities for our students. 
 

  • Professional development programming
