Yes, I recommend this program

Educative and refreshing!


My name is Esmeralda and I have a Global Leadership Diploma from Centre for Executive Education within the University for Peace, Costa Rica.

This diploma offers a myriad of different courses that fit perfectly to people all around the world with differente backgrounds and jobs. You choose 5 courses do you want to be part in from a catalogue of more than 10 courses. It mixes on-site courses with fully online courses (I fully recommend to come to Costa Rica if you have the possibility). They are also a perfect fit for people that studies and work at the same time. The webinars are interactive and you get to know your classmates even from a virtual classroom.

The diploma helped me deepen my understanding of leadership and gave me new insights. I learned from a vast of topics, from fundraising and M&E to Happiness and life design. I would recommend the diploma to anyone.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
You can do the diploma online however, I recommend a hybrid track. I extremely recommend to take the Positive Leadership course or the Gross Global Happiness Summit. The campus is beautiful, the connections with other participants are forever and you can later travel around Costa Rica :)
