Why the Middle East?

With some of the fastest growing cities in the world, the Middle East and North Africa offer exciting opportunities for leaders in business, financial, and economic development as well as social and political change. As with any region, the Middle East faces a unique set of challenges and possibilities, and the GLI is uniquely positioned to provide educational training to help leaders work through those challenges and possibilities to achieve their goals.  



The GLI Experience

Through partnerships with local organizations, universities, and government agencies, the GLI offers the chance to develop your skills in a large number of areas that are specific to the needs of the region, including customer service, innovation, leadership, political development, educational excellence, and new media marketing. Our programs are held in world-class hotels and are taught by leading Boston College faculty, allowing us to bring the Boston College experience to you.
