Global Citizen Leadership Program

Over the last 3 years WeSchool has been working actively with the globally acclaimed Centre for Creative leadership (CCL) to initiate the Global Citizen Leadership program at WeSchool. Till date this program has resulted in over 400 students having successfully completed 50 Projects over a period of two years, turning them into solutions for societal and business benefits.

With a view of providing holistic student growth and development, this voluntary-run and mandatory program is integrated into the regular PDGM curriculum as a credit course to boost the Emotional Quotient (EQ) in addition to the Intelligence Quotient (IQ). This cutting-edge transformative program which focuses on democratizing leadership development aims to provide leadership and innovative knowledge along with an opportunity to practice these skills in a real-life context, during the academic journey at WeSchool, impacting not only areas of business but also larger social issues. It involves a process of stakeholder mapping, gathering observations and insights, grouping of core thoughts, rapid prototyping and arriving at a solution that addressed the "opportunity statement" and is commercially feasible

Why WeSchool?

Message From the Director

It's a VUCA world where the rules of the game have changed. We often hear about terms such as globalization, triple bottom line, more for less for more, disruptive innovation, sustainability, technological revolution, social responsibility, ethics, governance and the list goes on. To keep abreast with the dynamism, there is a dire need for students to hone their leadership skills, have greater awareness of self & context, develop a global mindset, empathy & ethical perspective.

At WeSchool, all our efforts are towards grooming our students with these qualities and skill sets. Consequent to the mega shifts that have characterized the global and local business environment over the last five years, WeSchool is gearing itself towards developing the future ready managers and leaders, who are versatile, competent and value based. WeSchool's guiding philosophy has been that of AAA which stands for "Acquisition, Application and Assimilation of knowledge". Our emphasis is not only on acquisition of knowledge; but also on the application of knowledge. We strongly believe that by engaging students in pursuing real-life projects/simulations/case studies, wherein they are able to apply the concepts learnt, helps in permanent retention of knowledge which leads to assimilation.

Innovation and design thinking has always been one of the strongest pillars of WeSchool's guiding philosophy. We are committed in our journey towards inculcating innovative mindset in our students.

I welcome you to be a part of an intensive developmental experience at our sprawling campuses in Mumbai and Bengaluru which will truly enhance your intellectual and personal growth. We promise to equip you with inventive techniques and tools which will transform you into Global Citizen Leaders in organizations of today and tomorrow.
