The Global Links program aims to create a world of better opportunities by empowering women leaders for a bigger change.

What is Global Links?

Global Links is a cross-cultural exchange program that sponsors female professors from developing and post-conflict nations to grow their entrepreneurial skills and knowledge. Over nine to 12 months, this three-prong program engages scholars in in-depth business and social entrepreneurship training both at Tupperware Brands and Rollins. After this training, professors return to their home country and integrate their new business education curriculum at their university.

The Global Links program and its scholars contribute to upholding the overall Rollins mission to develop global citizens through education and community building.
