Generously supported by a gift from the Government of the United Arab Emirates, the Emirates Leadership Initiative Fellowship is a collaboration between the Middle East Initiative (MEI), the Center for Public Leadership (CPL), and Executive Education at Harvard Kennedy School. It provides advanced training in public management and leadership development to emerging public and private sector leaders from the United Arab Emirates and the broader Arab region.
Now more than ever, modern leadership requires the ability to work across cultures and sectors — to think globally and act locally. The Emirates Leadership Initiative Fellowship equips students with the tools to be a powerful force for change in an evolving global arena.
The Fellowship is part of the Emirates Leadership Initiative, a research and curricular collaboration between the Center for Public Leadership (CPL) and the Middle East Initiative (MEI) at HKS, and the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
