The Australian School of Business welcomes students from international business schools to Sydney this week for a high-profile week-long leadership development program known as I-LEAD.

I-LEAD, in its inaugural year and the first leadership development program of its kind, is a collaborative partnership led by the Australian School of Business, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and INSEAD Business School.

Together with students from the partner schools, around 75 delegates from 13 leading international business schools in six continents are participating, including Kellogg, MIT Sloan, London Business School, Copenhagen Business School, IE, Cass, Wits, NUS, Auckland Business School and the Universidad de Chile. The students were welcomed to the leadership development program this Monday at the University of New South Wales, home of the Australian School of Business.

Each school is represented by six exceptional master’s and MBA students, who will take part in teams, in various challenging workshops headed by prominent business leaders and executives. The workshops will then be followed up by a leadership residential camp at Broken Bay Island, north of Sydney.

The I-LEAD program director Shahid Majeed said, “Our vision for the I-LEAD program is to be recognized globally as ‘a unique and leading international leadership development program’, the first of its kind offered by any business school in the world. The program enables graduate students to refine leadership skills and increases their exposure to international business leadership issues.”
