SIBF’s annual summer program, targeted to young adults age 17 to 24, is held at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. This highly rated program offers students the chance to discover the mathematics of money, the importance of philanthropy and entrepreneurialism, and the significance of financial planning. Led by global finance and business experts, along with Cambridge scholars, the Money & Responsibility program is a life-changing experience for young people as they plot their courses for the future.
The Central Eurasia Leadership Alliance (CELA) is a program of lifetime personal development for outstanding mid-career professionals from the fields of business, education, and civil society. CELA draws its membership from the countries of the southern Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia) and Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan) together with Afghanistan. About 40 new members are selected yearly in a competitive but transparent admissions process in each country. The entry point to CELA is a 11-day intensive Academy in Istanbul that begins the education and mentoring journey.
The individual curriculum for both sessions of the SIBF Leadership Academy has been thoughtfully developed to offer a broad spectrum of opportunities to investigate innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship. World-class business coaches and global business executives with proven expertise serve as session instructors for the plenary sessions. In addition, a select group of experienced international business professionals serve as facilitators; two or three facilitators manage participant Learning Groups and lead the conversations that deepen and extend learning and personal growth. The underlying credo for the Academy is that everyone is a teacher; each participant is expected to share personal knowledge and experiences as they assimilate each session’s lessons.
Session 1: Atlanta, Georgia - May 14-19, 2018
Session 2: Dallas, Texas - August 26-30, 2018
Both sessions are required and participants will remain in contact to work on individual business projects between sessions 1 and 2.
