Penn’s Master of Liberal Arts in Global Leadership and Problem-Solving

The University of Pennsylvania’s Master of Liberal Arts in Global Leadership and Problem-Solving (MLA-GLPS) is an innovative graduate degree designed for high-achieving students from China. Our one-year program helps scholars tackle today’s international challenges and work collaboratively across borders and sectors—in government, NGOs, commerce and more.

The MLA-GLPS program is a unique opportunity for Chinese nationals to earn a graduate degree abroad at one of the most renowned universities in the United States. Our interdisciplinary Ivy League curriculum includes a guaranteed paid fellowship with a stipend of up to $7,500. Students can complete the fellowship in the US, China or another nation for experiences with non-profit, government or social organizations.

By earning a Master of Liberal Arts in Global Leadership and Problem-Solving, you learn from expert scholars and join an elite group of future influencers. A collaboration between Penn’s College of Liberal and Professional Studies (LPS) and Fox Leadership International, the MLA-GLPS program is highly applied and prepares each student with skills and experiences for personal and professional success as civic-minded, transformational leaders.

Classes start with the first semester on January 10, 2018 and finish at the end of the second semester on December 20, 2018.
