The Goldman Sachs Global Leaders Program identifies exceptional, second-year college students and provides them with training that will enhance their leadership abilities. The program provides young leaders with a unique international network through which they can share ideas, learn from established leaders, work collaboratively and address global challenges.

Each year 150 students are selected from 100 top universities and colleges in over 20 countries. Each student is awarded $3,000, and given the title of Goldman Sachs Global Leader. To become a Goldman Sachs Global Leader a student must be nominated by his/her university. Once nominated, the student submits an application to IIE. Panels within each region review all applications and select the final 150 student winners.
