OCB are currently undertaking a review of their application process for LEAP and will therefore not be opening for the January 2022 intake. Application dates for the September 2022 intake will be confirmed later in the year.
What is the OCB vision for LEAP?
The goal of LEAP is to ensure we develop a talented workforce and future leadership that reflects the great diversity of the organization. We want to ensure all our staff have access to world-leading universities, particularly those who otherwise would not have the means to pursue this level of education outside of MSF.
When selecting for the LEAP, OCB will consider a person’s capacity for strategic vision, innovation and critical reflection. We look to complement operational humanitarian experience with academic expertise in both medical and non-medical subject areas.
Who is it for?
LEAP is here to support MSF’s current and potential leaders, with an emphasis on ensuring the program is accessible to those who would otherwise not have the means to pursue a postgraduate level qualification.
For OCB, we have based our selection criteria on the following:
Majority of students must originate from countries where OCB have operations
All students must have at least 12 months’ prior MSF field experience
A diversity of candidates will be strongly endorsed
Staff should be in the field or in an active pool
