Patrick Meeren's experience

“The academic approach of the masterclasses encourages critical thinking. This is key to decision making, which in turn is essential when developing a strategy. A TIAS masterclass is a pressure cooker, a super summary without compromising the content. It's about re-focusing your mind. Making sure you're on top of everything, combined with the new insights you've gained. The lecturers get to the heart of the matter quickly and are knowledgeable, and the lectures are more than just a theoretical exercise.″

Leadership and Strategy Track - Program design and content

Design your own track

With this program, you get to create your own learning track. This makes it a unique program, tailored to your needs. You choose the masterclasses that best suit your learning objectives. You can complete the entire program within one year, but you have the option of taking up to two years, if you prefer. You can organize the content, intensity, and duration of your track to suit your work-life situation.

Masterclasses in Leadership and Strategy Track

The Advanced Program of Leadership and Strategy includes five masterclasses. The masterclasses Leadership and Strategic Management are compulsory, but you are free to choose the other ones. We have special masterclasses focusing on the profit and non-profit sectors. You have the option of starting with one masterclass and continuing with the full program later.

Develop your personal leadership

The further development of your personal leadership is part of this program. You can choose between 1-on-1 coaching or the Masterclass Personal Leadership.

Final paper: apply your newly gained insights to your own organization

At the end of the program, you write a final paper in which you immediately apply your newly gained knowledge and skills to your organization. Ideally, you start writing your paper after having completed at least three masterclasses. This will allow you to use knowledge and insights from different perspectives. During the diploma track, you will attend an online lecture on how to write the final paper.

 

Example of a Leadership and Strategy Track

In small masterclasses, expert lecturers share their vision on current and future developments in leadership and strategy, and you are invited to participate. As you progress, your ability to respond to complex issues in a clear manner and make well-thought-out decisions for your organization will increase.

Develop your personal leadership

One of the components of the track is the development of personal leadership. Together with a TIAS coach, you evaluate the knowledge and insights you have gained. You also discuss what this means for your personal development and how these new insights affect your organization. For this part, you can choose from the following:

  • Personal coaching (individual, 3 sessions)
  • Masterclass Personal Leadership (group, 2 days)

Final paper: apply your newly gained insights to your own organization

At the end of the program, you write a final paper under the personal supervision of an Academic Director. In this paper, you link the core elements of the program to your daily work. By working on an issue that is relevant to your work, you get to apply your newly gained knowledge and skills to your organization even before you graduate.
