NGU’s Institute for Global Leadership exists for one reason—to connect your personal purpose to God’s global story. Through short-term trips and specialized academic programs, prepare to advance God’s glory at home and around the world.
In business, education, fine arts, communication, health care and beyond, turn your heart for the nations into a purposeful profession. That’s your calling, and we’re here to help.
Two Minors, One Goal—Global Leadership.
Major in anything. Minor in leadership.
Elevate your ministry. Transform the marketplace. And lead others to pursue excellence. Complement your degree, whatever your major, and increase your impact through a Leadership Studies minor.
Your degree—made global.
At home or abroad, expand your career and advance the gospel through the global marketplace. With a Global Studies minor, gain the cross-cultural knowledge and skills to lead others in an increasingly globalized context.
Experience God’s Word come to life. Walk the roads. See the sites. Engage the culture. Elevate your vision for the nations where it all began.
The best way to learn is to do. Combine your heart for the nations and your in-class studies with real-world, cross-cultural, service-oriented work through short-term trips.
