Women’s Leadership Program

Achieve success with interactive learning and coaching

Diverse management teams improve the performance of companies and organizations: this has been proven by a variety of recent studies, inc

luding the Women Matter studies of the global management consulting firm McKinsey. Their research confirms that there is a significant link between women in leading positions and the financial output of a company. With the aim to support women in breaking the glass ceiling, MCI has designed this program and specifically adapted it to the needs of this group.

The interactive course of study and its modern learning environment provide the perfect framework for reflection, exploration, exchange, discussion, and networking. The program draws on the innovative concept of blended learning and, thus, facilitates the combination of work, study, and family. The knowledge provided in traditional on-campus classes is deepened in online discussion forums and MCI WEBINARS, where participants are encouraged to enter into an intensive dialog with their colleagues. This does not only aid the participants’ learning progress, but also strengthens their self-confidence and networking abilities.

Furthermore, added value is created by the inclusion of a specifically designed coaching program. This allows participants to enrich their professional experience with new insights, to expand their expertise in close dialog with colleagues and lecturers, and to apply their newly acquired knowledge and skills to their own profession.

The Women’s Leadership Program enables you to

  • explore specific leadership qualities and reflect on your own leadership style,
  • learn how to appreciate yourself and your performance and how to position yourself better,
  • acquire strategies for sustainable career development and reconsider your balance between job and family,

Your way to success

The concept of this innovative training program is perfectly tailored to the needs of the group specified above.

The content of the program is divided into two topics: “Leading oneself” and “Leading others”. Our modern approach to teaching combines traditional on-campus classes with online MCI WEBINARS and discussion forums. This is, on the one hand, to facilitate study in complex life situations and, on the other, to acquaint participants with the use of digital communication.

To ensure practical relevance and to enable participants to relate and apply the course content to their own professional context, two reflection papers as well as a final paper are assigned.
