The Yale-NUS Summer Institute in Global Strategy and Leadership is an intensive introduction to the skills and tools needed to address the big issues affecting a world that is both increasingly globalized and more polarized and volatile. Open to both Yale-NUS and Yale students, the program focuses on the methodologies and theories, largely drawn from social sciences, which inform actionable insight into broad global issues such as international trade, the rise of China, and humanitarian crises. In addition, modules will focus on the development of wider skill sets: writing, research design, and argumentation. You may find the syllabus for the Summer 2019 program here.
Guest lecturers from across the various schools at Yale University and beyond will bring their insights and perspectives to these issues. Through formal dinners and other events, students will also have the opportunity to hear from and network with leaders in various fields whose work and life histories show how they have made an impact in the world.
Students will experience Yale campus life in New Haven—living in residential colleges, eating in the dining halls, and building connections with faculty from the various schools at Yale University.
The Summer Institute is open to students from all academic disciplines and majors. Priority will be given to first and second year students – however, third year students (and fourth year DDP students) are also welcome to apply. Applicants should be in good academic and disciplinary standing. Successful applicants will demonstrate the following in a 300-word essay:
