Whether you are just beginning your career as a legal leader or an experienced GC with a record of executive roles in leading organizations, GCU can help you to perform your role more effectively.
GCU is committed to providing GCs with a curriculum that’s strategically mapped to top Competencies that will enhance your contribution to the C-suite and advance the business. Each course will include learning objectives from at least two such Competencies. The Most Sought GC Program is based on Korn Ferry’s global competency framework, derived from qualitative, quantitative and market-based data, and relying on comprehensive and rigorous analysis, external research literature etc. WGCC commissioned Korn Ferry to identify key competencies, traits, drivers of GCs that are requisite to be the “Most Sought” GC and we have used that research to frame this Program.
GCU is grateful to the sponsors and partners of GCU who support our program by collaborating on and delivering top quality programming in support of GCU.

GCU exceeded my expectations! The curriculum was marked by rich content and nuggets of wisdom that is beneficial for all types of GCs. But most importantly, I will forever carry with me the network of inspirational women leaders that I can now call my friends and GC confidantes.
As a graduate, I can say that it was a profound and perspective changing experience for me, both professionally and personally, and the network and connections I have within my cohort are for a lifetime.
