In addition, the first semester focuses on understanding the importance of leadership activities in line with corporate culture, developing and applying relevant competencies.
  • Application of Leadership Tasks (2nd semester)
    In the second semester, these leadership competencies are applied to the specific leadership tasks. The topics that are particularly challenging for managers are: the search for, development and retention of talents in Strategic Human Resource Management. To design new working models, to develop teams and their performance and also to consider cultural and ethical aspects when leading employees. The contents of the modules are applied in the development of concepts. The development of personal and social action competences is promoted in the Contracting & Negotiation module, which particularly reflects the intercultural context. Academic Paper Design & Writing develops competences in scientific methods and thus academic thinking.
