ABOUT GLC: The Global Leadership Certificate program is a two-year certificate offered to OHIO undergraduates that prepares students to serve as internationally-minded, skilled, attuned, professional and experienced leaders in all walks of life.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM: Global Leadership Certificate students will enjoy the opportunity of a lifetime to partner with students from America University of Phnom Penh in Cambodia to collaborate on projects in conjugation with Cambodia-based NGOs. OHIO students work with Phnom Penh students online through the semester and finish their project on-site in Cambodia to finalize and present their projects to the given client. Students in the program also travel to Siem Reap for a long excursion. The GLC experience is unlike any program offered because students form relationships with students in other parts of the world prior to and during their global adventure.
