As well as their own companies, the Global Leaders’ Group have arranged meetings with the Royal Academy, Linley Furniture, Alice Bow, Samsung Electronics, and Credit Suisse amongst others. The students will also attend a reception at the Australian High Commission hosted by the High Commissioner,  the Hon. Alexander Downer AC.

Monash students were invited to apply for the Global Discovery Program 2017 by creating a 30 second video on the theme, What will you discover? They uploaded their videos to YouTube and Vimeo using #monashdiscovery. Read about the student delegates  for  the first Global Discovery Program in London here.

“Interacting with distinguished Monash alumni in a truly global city and sharing this experience with fellow students is an adventure I am privileged to embark on and am ready to embrace.”
