Register Now for The Worldview Institute: An Executive Training Program of UNA-NY

Thursday, December 20, 2012
The Worldview Institute provides a forum within which New York professionals can engage and discuss global issues with experts in foreign policy and international affairs. Its program consists of ten seminar modules geared to develop and enhance the scope of the work and activities of young business executives at U.S. based multi-national corporations and young professionals within the NGO, United Nations, media, law, government, diplomatic and academic communities.

The Worldview semester is a corporate executive training program of the United Nations Association of New York. We are seeking the best and brightest young professionals between the ages of 25 and 40. Accordingly, applicants are required to have a bachelor's degree and a minimum three years professional experience or relevant graduate work.

Seminar topics are designed to stimulate informal but academic discussions with practitioners in the international arena and to illuminate and explore business, political, economic and social trends in different regions of the world. Where appropriate, they also address the role of the UN within these contexts. 

Our Worldview discussions are led by distinguished lecturers including UN ambassadors, noted academics and leaders in global business. We are especially excited that UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson has graciously consented to open this season's semester. Some of the topics featured this semester include:

Impacts of the Financial Crisis on Latin America
Founding a Movement : Women's World Banking
Modern Slavery
The Eurozone Crisis : A Historical Perspective
Syria : the Fall of the House of Assad

Please note that enrollment is limited. For details on dates, all topics and speakers for the semester, and complete details for enrollment and registration for the Winter 2013 term, click here.
