Leadership programmes

University partners


In each Magnet City we work with a University Partner. 


The University hosts the programme and identifies the students from across the Magnet City. It also provides speakers and contributors who know the city or the issues surrounding the Challenge.

University Partners want
  • To stand out
  • To be ever more international
  • Their students to succeed
  • Their Magnet City to succeed
