Strategic Management

Acquire compact new approaches to leadership and management

As the markets change, the requirements on management become more versatile and complex. In order to proactively meet these challenges, leaders need to be able to adapt their individual profiles accordingly. The compact course in Strategic Management provides a modern training program tackling current developments and equipping leaders with relevant competencies.

If we want to take a leading position in international competition, we will have to focus on the connection between leadership, strategy, and management more than ever before. Following Henry Mintzberg, a renowned Canadian professor of business administration and management, and his model of organizational structures, the Strategic Management course is divided into five areas of competence. These are meant to reflect the requirements on a modern leader who is expected to be able to manage the self, relationships, organizations, context, and change.
