Join together with students from diverse majors to address complex global challenges around issues such as public health, sustainability and inequality. The Franke Global Leadership Initiative is a four-year, 12-credit certificate program that gives you access to world-class leaders and provides opportunities to tackle real-world problems locally and around the globe.

The global leadership certificate can be added to any University of Montana major and includes interdisciplinary group work, small seminar classes from a wide variety of faculty across campus, and specialized leadership training. Our program also features a unique “Beyond the Classroom” experiential learning component, for which students may earn scholarship funding of up to $5,000 to study abroad, complete international and domestic internships, or undertake service-learning or research projects.
