GRLI in collaboration with IESEG School of Management has the pleasure to announce the 3rd Scholarship Programme for the IESEG Postgraduate International Summer Academy 2012. The GRLI Young Ambassadors Scholarship provides an opportunity for students with limited background, education and training experiences in the management arena to develop new learning frameworks.
The IESEG Postgraduate International Summer Academy is a comprehensive programme of summer management institutes, study abroad, company participation and student services that include mentoring and career development in responsible leadership. The Summer Academy provides students with the education and training necessary for a career in international management. It enhances their prospects of entry, advancement and leadership roles in international business. IESEG is one of the top 10 business school in France and its mission is to train and prepare future executives and leaders in the corporate world both nationally and internationally, create actors of change in a professional environment that is constantly changing. The school is internationally recognized for its high level of teaching and research in the field of responsible leadership.
The Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) is a worldwide partnership of companies and business schools/learning organisations working together in a laboratory of change to develop a next generation of globally responsible leaders. The GRLI engages in thought leadership, advocacy and projects to achieve measurable impact. Founded in 2004 by EFMD and the UN Global Compact, today it comprises 73 partner (member) organisations who join based on their commitment to transform leadership development. It is a partnership organisation, a foundation, an advanced laboratory and a movement.
Over the past years the GRLI has developed the concept of global responsibility as a higher order of responsibility beyond CSR and catalysed the creation of two new academic journals (Journal of Global Responsibility and The Sustainability, Accounting, Management and Policy Journal). It has developed a framework to measure global responsibility (The GRID) which has been successfully tested in a number of organisations.
Current projects and activities include faculty development, the establishment of a worldwide network of local Councils for Leadership, Business Summits, Academic Conferences, research into the Corporation of the 21st Century, a young ambassadors programme, blueprinting the business school of the 21st century and a book series.
