Applications are already open for the Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute Crossroads Emerging Leaders Program 2020 in Dubai, UAE. The Crossroads Emerging Leaders Program was inaugurated in 2017 as a joint effort between the Harvard Business School Club of the GCC, HBS Professors Tarun Khanna and Karim Lakhani, and The Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute at Harvard University.
The first part of the Crossroads Program will be entirely online and open to all eligible applicants. The Online Program begins on September 9, 2019. Successful candidates from the Online Program will be invited to apply to the in-person experience held in Dubai and delivered by Harvard professors between March 31, 2020 — April 5, 2020.
The Program is a prestigious and a fully funded career development opportunity for students from across the world, who are the first member of their family—or the first generation within their family—to attend university and facing challenges of financial and social circumstances. Following a rigorous multi-stage evaluation process, exceptional students are selected from a diverse applicant pool to take part in this unique educational experience.
The ultimate aim of the Crossroads Program is to create a diverse pipeline of future graduate students at leading universities, such as Harvard, and future leaders from across an array of social-economic, racial and cultural backgrounds.
In 2020, the Crossroads Program expands to include more eligible countries and curated online sessions that will culminate in the weeklong Dubai experience held at Dubai International Financial Center’s Academy. Leading Harvard faculty members will teach an extensive and multi-disciplinary curriculum that includes a combination of case studies, small discussion groups, discussion on potential career paths, and information on applying to Harvard.
