Applications open for September 2021. 

The Rising Public Leaders Programme brings together a group of upcoming public leaders from a diverse array of countries, deepening the leadership skills of the participants while strengthening their international networks.

The content follows the curriculum of our flagship Executive Public Leaders Programme, but is customised for those preparing to move into a top job in a government department, ministry, or multilateral institution.

The programme covers: confronting global challenges, communicating internally and externally, harnessing digitial technology, decision-making under pressure, organisational effectiveness, negotiation, and integrity in public life.

The 2021 residential programme will take place in September, with the exact dates to be announced shortly.
