The inaugural Yale-NUS Summer Institute in Global Strategy and Leadership brought 39 Yale-NUS students to Yale in June for a five-week program designed to provide students with an in-depth and rigorous introduction to history, politics, social change, and a number of large-scale global challenges facing tomorrow’s leaders.

Adapted from Yale’s Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy, the Summer Institute focused on the theory and practice of grand strategy from varying analytic perspectives. The curriculum also provided opportunities for students to apply these concepts to current global issues related to the environment, public health, and the movement of the world’s population. The program also sought to foster leadership development through exercises in group dynamics, persuasive writing, and an international crisis simulation.
