A leadership programme for exceptional leaders
Up to 30 seats available in American University of Cairo -
Our programme is offered to students who have the potential to shape a more sustainable and inclusive world. We focus our efforts on the schools where future leaders are educated and have a rigorous recruitment process before admitting students to our program. The programme runs over 1 academic year and it is adjusted to local context to ensure students can balance their time between the programme and their academic curriculum. Students can't join the programme on their own, they join in teams. Today, 2100+ students from 100+ top universities and 44+ countries are following the ShARE programme.
The programme is structured to improve the students’ ability to take initiatives and develop an entrepreneurial spirit. Students will be required to manage projects and teams. They will have access to leadership modules (i.e. awareness of their strengths and weaknesses, build trust, create meaning) and will be trained by professional coaches.
ShARE students acquire top corporate skills through training, projects with start-up and real life projects. Students will be trained by former consultants from top consulting firms (ie McKinsey, BCG, etc.). In particular, they will be trained in the methods of "problem solving", "effective communication", "analytics", "project management".
Openness to the world
The program is completely taught in English and students are grouped into international teams. Students from American University of Cairo will work with Chinese, American and Indian students who also follow the ShARE program.
Do well do good
Students collaborate on solving major societal issues such as poverty, inequalities, climate change and work on DWDG projects.
Pedagogy is complementary to an academic curriculum. ShARE's pedagogy is based on 3 axes: learning by doing, emulation learning and learning by teaching.
Learning by doing
Students spend more than 60% of their time on real projects so they can sharpen their skills through practice.
Students are grouped into teams of 5. Groups compete and students grade is made of 50% of their own grade and 50% of their team grade.
Learning by teaching
Senior students become teachers of the Junior students. That’s the best way to ensure concept and skills have been fully acquired.
