The BMGA Fellowship Program aim to transform up to 10,000 female leaders directly and indirectly in the next five years.

This will ensure that more women are equipped with skills that enable them to be active contributors to a gender-equal world.
The BMGA Way
Once selected, participants go through an intensive six-month learning experience that utilizes modern technological tools and resources to aid transformational learning.
The program consists of 7 modules led by industry experts and professors from top universities across the world. With the use of live classes, TED talks, case studies, and other learning tools, participants are able to gain new insights into the skills required for the next Information Revolution. During the program, participants also actively engage in peer-to-peer mentoring with graduate students in top universities across the world.
