Global Leadership Program

You’re socially aware and ready to take on the world. But how do you make an impact? We give you the tools you need to drive real change, with a focus on cross-cultural and leadership skills, global issues, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

The multi award-winning Global Leadership Program (GLP) is a University-funded extracurricular program that is open to all students, and can be undertaken alongside any Macquarie degree. The GLP is made up of interdisciplinary workshops on global issues, as well as a range of facilitated and self-directed practical experiences. By participating in the GLP, Macquarie students develop the skills, awareness and intercultural competence needed to become confident global leaders.

Gain recognition for your participation and initiative

You will be awarded credit towards your GLP for practical, cultural and academic experiences, giving you the opportunity to build networks and to gain practical experience before you graduate. Successful completion of the GLP will be recognised on your official academic transcript and AHEGS statement. The GLP will also issue you with a letter of recommendation, a transcript of your GLP activities, and a certificate of achievement.
