McDonnell Academy International Leadership Institute

The McDonnell Academy International Leadership Institute (MAILI) is a five-week, academic experience for students from Washington University in St. Louis and the academy’s international partner institutions.

The curriculum takes an innovative, comprehensive and unconventional approach to the concept of leadership, borrowing from disciplines such as Behavioral Psychology, Neuroscience, Organizational Behavior and even English Literature. The Leadership Course also addresses pressing global concerns each week such as Energy, Environment and Public Health, presented by leaders in these fields. This multifaceted approach to the issues of leadership more optimally addresses the complex demands on leaders in the 21st century.
