General Management

Business administration for non-business majors.

Globalization of markets, leadership strategies, knowledge engineering, change management, new information and communication technologies are only a few of the complex topics shaping the current business and management discourse. We are currently witnessing a cultural and structural change, in which the intensity, pace, and effect will be unprecedented. Consistently enforced strategic management with operational stability will determine the success of a company and any other institution or organization more than ever before.

It provides executives and up and coming ones from business, administration, culture, and politics with a practical management guide enabling them to proactively meet the challenges of their profession.

The course offers a foundation in entrepreneurial thinking and action and qualifies participants to successfully apply this knowledge in practice.

Upon completion of the Certificate in General Management program you will have

  • understood the development of internal and external demands on organizational and project management and have learned how to apply the newly acquired management knowledge,
  • acquired state-of-the-art methods and tools to adequately master new challenges,
  • created a personal management concept as part of your final project, which will help you take on the daily responsibilities and problems of your profession.

Participants are given plenty of opportunity to reflect on and come to understand their current and future management responsibilities from a holistic point of view.
