King Global Leadership Program

The King Global Leadership Program (KGLP) is designed to augment the academic work you are doing in your graduate program.

As you pursue your graduate education, you will develop a depth of knowledge in your chosen field of study. The KGLP builds upon that expertise, preparing you to be a leader in your field.

Funded by a generous gift from Dorothy and Robert King, MBA ’60, the KGLP provides a diverse menu of offerings that can be tuned to meet your academic schedule and specific goals.
