Program Overview

Program Description:
PGLS is a component school of Preparing Global Leaders Foundation (PGLF), an educational non-profit dedicated to changing the paradigm of leadership through intensive institutes, seminars, and summits. PGLF operates programs currently in Russia, Macedonia, Croatia, and Jordan and its program alumni hail from over a hundred countries. The Preparing Global Leaders Summit (PGLS) is a premiere international educational program for the best young professionals in the world. The program seeks to prepare aspiring global scholar-leaders with the tools that are necessary for effective leadership in an increasingly complex world.

Students will join a distinguished faculty that includes PGLF founder Dr. Sam Potolicchio (Georgetown University, New York University, RANEPA), former Rhodes Scholar and current Columbia University Professor Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, and Dr. Branden Thornhill-Miller (Oxford, Sorbonne). PGLS 2015 curricula and simulations will cover the following topics: negotiation, strategic thinking, public speaking, networking, persuasion, branding, public policy, statistics, comparative politics, demography, citizenship, civil wars, geopolitical strategy, Russia and the West, and Russian politics and history.

Whether you’re interested in exploring the paradigm of 21-century leadership, looking for international networking opportunities with the most talented young professionals in the field, or simply searching for a transformative summer experience, the Preparing Global Leaders Summit is the perfect choice. As an educational program, PGLS brings together young people interested in a scholarly approach to practical 21-century leadership. The skills-based approach, combined with the dynamic location and unquenchable enthusiasm make up for a perfect setting to set up goals and partnerships for the future generation of effective leaders. The faculty selected for this program undergo a rigorous vetting process. As a result, only the best and most promising professors focused on changing the stale paradigm of leadership are selected to lead the delegates in their personal development. Unlike in many other academically demanding programs, PGLS professors are there for the students outside—as much as inside—the classroom, providing guidance or discussing lofty ideals over a glass of beer at one of Moscow’s numerous bar options. The learning opportunities are endless!

The PGLS takes place in Moscow, Russian Federation. Students will spend 7 days at the RANEPA campus, which is located at Prospect Vernadskogo, 82/2, (???????? ???????????, ??? 82, ?????? 2).
