Meet the Pitt Bloggers for Leadership in the Himalayas

Leadership in the Himalayas Overview

Leadership skills are among the most highly sought transferrable skills that you will utilize in your professional life. Developing your leadership style is also a very personal experience that can’t be taught in the classroom. Leadership Development in the Himalayas gives you the opportunity to go beyond leadership theory and develop your leadership skills through experiential outdoor learning in the Indian Himalayas.   

During the pre-departure seminars in Pittsburgh and the month-long program at the Hanifl Centre in Mussoorie, India, you will learn principles and theories behind leadership development and have the chance to develop and hone your leadership skills through outdoor education. The program includes a two-week intensive trek in the Himalaya, field-based experiential learning at the Hanifl Centre, and leadership seminars.

This is a physically demanding program, and participants must be prepared for physically exhaustive, multi-day outdoor activities such as trekking/backpacking and camping at elevations above 10,000ft. It is recommended that you have prior experience trekking/backpacking and sleeping outside for multiple nights.
