DHL GoTrade GBSN Fellowship Program 2024

In support of DHL’s objective to strengthen management and entrepreneurial education, GBSN collaborated with one of its corporate partners, DPDHL, to create the DHL Leadership Academy.

The GoTrade GBSN Fellowship Program pairs chosen postgraduate business students with small and medium-sized firms (SMEs) in developing countries in order to promote greater cross-border commerce.

This immediately fulfills GBSN’s collective purpose of improving access to high-quality, regionally relevant management and entrepreneurship education for the developing countries. GoTrade is about education and accessibility.

The Fellowship Program will pair graduate business students (MBA/MSc/Masters/PhD) with SMEs for 12 months. Each GoTrade GBSN Fellow will be assigned an SME to advise, consult, and collaborate with.

The GoTrade GBSN Fellowship Program will convene regular virtual sessions bringing all students together with speakers on relevant subject matter to aid their learning objectives, with the additional goal of fostering networking among peers.

Fellows will be supported by:

  • DPDHL mentors
  • Coaching and mentoring with SMEs
