Check out last year’s Global
Leadership Summit!

THE GLOBAL LEADERSHIP SUMMIT: PARIS

Last summer, over 160 of our alumni, parents, student, faculty, and friends from more than 35 countries convened in Paris for Northeastern University’s first-ever Global Leadership Summit. Together, we were inspired by talented and dynamic speakers. We shared our own experiences and created meaningful connections with one another. We forged new paths and opportunities for rising leaders with the potential to shape our future. And we created collective action to make an impact across our communities.

WHY SHANGHAI

Northeastern is a global research university renowned for its leadership in experiential education. The university’s signature co-op program integrates coursework with six-month job placements at corporations, nonprofits, startups, and medical and scientific research institutes across industries and around the world. This distinctive model uniquely enables us to meet disruptive challenges facing higher education as well as to drive change.

Northeastern’s global reach perfectly positions us to convene top leaders in Shanghai to address our community. The Asian region has a long history of innovating through disruption, as well as generating global disruption that prompts innovation elsewhere. It is also home to many of us, with nearly 5,000 alumni, 2,000 parents, and 7,000 students.
