Global Leadership Program (GLP)

The Global Leadership Program (GLP) brings together the best and brightest of the USC Marshall Freshmen.

The Global Leadership Program (GLP) is a groundbreaking program open by invitation only to the most academically talented students in each incoming freshmen class. GLP consists of a fall & spring course, BUAD 101 Freshman Leadership Seminar, during the academic year, including regular meetings for social activities, networking, advising, & career development. The experience is capped off with a visit to Shanghai or Beijing during spring break. During the trip, students will be meeting with executives of some of the top companies and businesses in major cities in Asia as well as local & national government officials. In their latter years, GLP Alumni have the opportunity to plan events and mentor younger students, as well as continue to travel abroad to learn about the global impact of business.
