Motivated students eager to share their study abroad experience with current and future ISI Florence students are urged to apply to the Global Leadership Program. This semester-long program is an opportunity for students to develop and enhance their leadership competencies and cross-cultural awareness through the creation and implementation of social activities and reflective initiatives.
Students will be asked to complete a total of seven activities (three mandatory and four of their own choice) in a variety of fields such as social media, creative writing, event planning, and communication. Students will be mentored throughout the program by an Institute staff member and will have the opportunity to reflect on their progress at various dinners and social events held during the semester.
In addition, participants will be invited to attend a professional development workshop where they will discover ways to successfully communicate their international experience in their future academic and professional careers. Finally, upon successful completion of the program, ISI Florence will issue a digital certificate to each participant, certifying the skills they developed in the program and emphasizing the activities they completed. Participants can expect to dedicate around 10-15 hours to the program, depending on the activities chosen.
