Over 88 men and women from 61 countries have come to Yale as World Fellows. The program seeks both to enrich the understanding of international issues on campus and to build a global network of emerging leaders.

Advanced Training for World Leaders

Yale World Fellows Program. Since it was established in 2002, the Yale World Fellows Program has created a network of leaders that includes 88 men and women from 61 different countries. The program has three goals: to provide advanced global leadership training to emerging leaders from a diverse set of fields and countries; to link these world leaders to each other and to Yale in a tangible way; and to facilitate the internationalization of the University. This year, the Yale World Fellows Program has expanded the network to include 10 new countries. Pictured at right is a recent class of World Fellows. The 2006 fellows include the deputy chief executive officer of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, the minister of finance of Costa Rica, the director general of the Ethiopian Intellectual Property Office, the managing partner of Vietnam's leading law firm and a top correspondent for Egypt's most widely read newspaper.

Advanced Education for Business & Government Leaders. In the past two years, business and government leaders from around the globe have come to campus for Yale-developed advanced executive education programs. These have included established and emerging leaders from Kazakhstan, the United Arab Emirates, China and Japan.

The most recent of these, the Japan-Yale Senior Government Leadership Program, was held in July in New Haven and Washington, D.C. Japanese governmental leaders at the senior levels of their respective ministries and legislative leaders took part in the program, which included lectures and discussions led by Yale faculty experts in economics, law, political science, management, history, public health, architecture, and forestry and environmental studies. The lectures at Yale were followed by two days of site visits and private meetings with government officials and foreign policy experts in Washington, D.C. Among the sites the participants visited were the U.S. Capitol Building, the U.S. Department of State, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Brookings Institution.
