Why Dublin?

With companies like Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Hubspot all establishing offices in Dublin, Ireland is emerging as a leading center for technological development and business opportunitites. The Global Leadership Institute, drawing on strong alumni connections that mirror the growing trade links, seeks to bring our programing to you. With both custom-designed and executive program opportunities, participants on a GLI Europe program can expect the same level of programing they would experience at Boston College, but much closer to home.

Dublin has become a major European capital and positioned itself at the heart of Europe. A member of the Euro zone, Dublin has developed its airport, and offers the best in business travel with direct connections across Europe. In addition, Dublin, along with Abu Dhabi, is one of two airports outside of North America to offer U.S. Immigration and Customs clearance. This helps to position Dublin as the ideal bridge for professionals between Europe and the U.S.


The GLI Experience

At our beautiful location on St. Stephen’s Green in the heart of Dublin, Boston College faculty offer the same high quality academic sessions our participants have come to expect in GLI programs. Participants in GLI Europe programing will engage in short, weekend programs that are suited for the lives of busy professionals. This intensive program will ensure an efficient and educationally benefical experience.


Advantages Abroad

Through our work in Ireland and with Boston College's deep roots in the Irish-American experience, the GLI has fostered an incredible network of over 1,400 alumni. These alumni are invaluable resources as guest speakers, facilitators, and business partners in our work abroad. By expanding to Dublin, we offer the chance to connect with these partners and give you another chance to participate in the GLI experience.
