Good afternoon,

I am absolutely delighted that Boston College’s Global Leadership Institute (“GLI”) will be the official partner of the LBDC Dublin chapter.

To celebrate this partnership, the GLI has kindly agreed to sponsor our exclusive summer event in Dublin with guest speaker Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland.  A big thank you to Dr. Robert M. Mauro, the founding director of the Global Leadership Institute (GLI).

IDA (Industrial Development Authority) is Ireland’s inward investment promotion agency responsible for the attraction and development of foreign investment in Ireland.

The Global Leadership Institute


The Global Leadership Institute at Boston College offers dynamic programming for professionals looking to expand their areas of expertise and meet other like-minded individuals.

Through our custom designed and open enrollment programming, the Global Leadership Institute empowers you to reflect on your career, connect with influential leaders in the field, enhance your skills, and learn cutting edge techniques.

The Global Leadership Institute:  Dublin Campus 


Like EMC, Apple, Google, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and so many others, Boston College chose to make Dublin its European headquarters.

At our beautiful location on St. Stephen’s Green in the heart of Dublin, Boston College faculty offer the same high quality academic sessions our participants have come to expect in GLI programs.

Participants in GLI Europe programing will engage in short, weekend programs that are suited for the lives of busy professionals. This intensive program will ensure an efficient and educationally benefical experience.


We at the Global Leadership Institute are experts at designing custom programs to serve the needs of our students and partner organizations.

We closely follow trends in domestic and global social, political, and economic circumstances to identify ways in which we can help our participants achieve their professional goals. Working across a wide range of industries and businesses, we create engaging programs that connect our participants with leaders both in and out of the classroom.

Programs Types:

The Executive Course program list for 2015-2016 will be available shortly.
