Become a Change Maker
Through the Future-Ready Skills for Leaders: Boston programme, 25 undergraduate students from across the University will come together to work on projects and develop skills that enable them to become change makers both at Queen’s university and in the wider community.
Applications for the 2023 trip to Boston are now closed as the students have been selected.
Launch of Future-ready Skills for Leaders: Boston 2023
And we’re off! The Future-Ready Skills for Leaders: Boston programme 2023 kicked off in The Cube, One Elmwood last week.
25 undergraduate students from across the University were selected for the programme. They came together for the first time to address the challenge:
“How might Queen's ensure our graduates are equipped to tackle 21st Century problems”?
The sessions included an introduction to “Design Thinking”, a very interesting panel event relating to the challenge and a range of activities to support the programme.
The project work, which takes place at Queen's, is enhanced by a short visit to an international city to meet with alumni and other professionals, this time round the students will visit Boston in the USA.
The student projects for 2023 will address the question “How might Queen's ensure our graduates are equipped to tackle 21st Century problems”?
The Future-Ready Skills for Leaders: Boston programme was formerly known as Queen's Global Leadership programme, and is Future-Ready Award (formerly DegreePlus), accredited.
“This programme completely changed my understanding of business strategy and leadership, making me feel more confident about the corporate environment and the different ways you can show leadership.” Maisie Linford
