About the Latin America Leadership Program
The Latin America Leadership Program (LALP) within Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business develops innovative non-degree executive education programs that aim to educate, connect, and inspire business, public, and social leaders to create impact networks with a positive multiplier effect across Latin America and the Caribbean in the pursuit of the university’s mission of teaching and service for the common good. LALP develops and implements innovative leadership programs that promote strategic alliances and networks with transformational and transnational impact across 4 leadership pillars: business, public, and social leadership through a personal leadership lens.
LALP currently houses two annual flagship programs— the Global Competitiveness Leadership Program (GCL) and the Innovation and Leadership in Government Program (ILG)- that, together with its custom program offer designed for organizations across the region, its series of public dialogues, its publications, and its alumni networks help foster deeper links between Georgetown University and Latin America, promote responsible and transformative leadership, and develop impact networks that create a positive multiplier effect across the region.
For its programs and initiatives, LALP engages faculty, researchers, program teams, and students across the university to 1. strenghten engagement between Georgetown and Latin America, 2. promote responsible and transformational leadership, and 3. develop impact networks that create a positive multiplier effect across the region. Some of LALP university partners include the Office of Executive Education at the McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University Latin American Board, the Office of the Vice President of Global Engagement, Georgetown Americas Institute, the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), and the Center for the Rule of Law in the Americas.
- Strengthen engagement between Georgetown and Latin America
- Promote responsible and transformational leadership
- Develop impact networks that create a positive multiplier effect across the region
LALP develops and implements innovative leadership programs that promote strategic alliances and networks with transformational and transnational impact. LALP efforts are divided into four key areas:
Imparted by Georgetown University's distinguished faculty members and expert guest speakers, LALP presents two annual leadership development programs for emerging leaders from Latin America, in collaboration with the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Office of Executive Education and with the support of the Latin American Board and other sponsors.
Based on the successful models of both its annual offerings, the GCL and ILG programs, LALP implements tailored programs in Washington, DC, and throughout the region. These custom programs, which are designed for companies, institutions, and universities to address the different challenges of the region have flexible formats to adjust to the needs of each institution and engage distinguished faculty from Georgetown University.
LALP works closely and supports its GCL and ILG alumni networks, which are active agents of change throughout the region. Members of these networks interact and support each other through an organized platform that allows and promotes the exchange of ideas and a greater impact through their diverse initiatives.
LALP collaborates with other Georgetown University units and external stakeholders to present a series of public dialogues, throughout the year, that bring together leaders from government, business, civil society, and the academy to address the key themes of governance and the rule of law, economic growth and innovation, and social and cultural inclusion related to Latin America.
The Journal of Globalization, Competitiveness, and Governability, published by Georgetown University, aims to become a source of new ideas about the effects of globalization on the competitiveness and governability of businesses and countries in Latin America, and particularly on the tools available to managers and politicians to design better strategies to benefit their respective businesses and countries.
