You haven’t missed your chance to apply for a MEL or MHLP! Applications for the 2024 MEL and MHLP programs will open on January 1, 2023.

Our world needs leaders to address the severe challenges we are facing – from the climate crisis and energy supply issues to the impacts of an aging population and increasing pressures on our healthcare system.

The MEL and MHLP support your leadership development by teaching theories and then asking you to apply these concepts first within the classroom and, ultimately, within the work environment. Our program equips you with the skills needed to lead in diverse, multicultural and unfamiliar settings, with learners joining cohorts of students from across the world and a range of technical disciplines. Through immersive educational experiences, you’ll receive a crash course in managing in a changing world. Don’t wait, you can make an impact in your career, your life, and our world.
