Transforming executives to global leaders: The New York international module experience
Jun 9, 2017
Strathmore Business School’s Masters in Public Policy Management students are currently attending the international module for Global Leaders offered at Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service of New York University.
The international module for Global Leaders is an exciting one-week intensive course offered at one of the best schools in public policy courses in the US. With this collaboration, our executives are able to enjoy some of the highly sort-after expertise of the NYU Wagner faculty in the various fields of public policy.
Other than classroom activities, participants are also given an opportunity to interact with global Policy makers such as the Kenyan permanent representative to the UN, Ambassador Macharia Kamau, heads of International Organizations such as UNCTAD and other UN bodies.
Why the International module?
- Students will profit from direct, in-depth observation of a different business and policy environment and from exposure to major international organizations and other UN agencies based in distinct geographies with skills and capabilities derived from a different institutional and resource base.
- The NYU International module for Global Leaders will contain materials that emphasize a specific area of expertise, industrial focus, and geographic characteristics that each expert from NYU brings to the group based on their own expertise.
- Participants will gain from close interaction with the best minds from industry, government, and academia involved at various levels of policy making and implementation
- The participants will also have an opportunity to learn from and network with Executive MPA students from NYU who come from different nationalities in an intensive work and social environment. This will be through panel discussions and dinner/cocktail events during the visit.
- This week-long program provides MPPM Executives with in-depth exposure to the experiences of policy environments in different parts of the world as they cope with new challenges from local and global contexts. The program is a value-added component to the standard MPPM curriculum that goes beyond the content of traditional functional courses and electives. We aim to broaden the participants understanding of global and competitive issues and to enrich the content of the partners’ respective programs.
At the end of the module the participants are awarded a certificate for their achievements in the course.
