Global Trade Leader Program

Building local talent with a global mindset is essential for advancing sustainable global trade in Asia. Our Global Trade Leader Program grants scholarships, and provides a blend of trade knowledge and skills through tailored educational programs. Created in partnership with corporations and universities, key components of our programs include:

  • A high-quality Masters’ degree at a reputable institution
  • Leadership and soft-skills training
  • An internship that develops practical knowledge and skills in trade
  • Participation in conferences and events, such as our trade negotiation simulations, that build foundational knowledge about global trade

In addition to providing an education to our scholars, we mentor each of them individually to develop an understanding of the value proposition that sustainable trade brings and cultivate ethical values to advance sustainable trade.
