I gained a natural self-confidence

The Leadership & Management Diploma Program for me was the ideal combination of high- level deepening and the right investment of time. Because of my 2 small children and my own company, I didn't have the time to study every week for 52 weeks. The preparation for each master class was doable and after that we zoomed in on the content in 3 days. I followed 6 master classes and the diploma trajectory. The diploma program has made me a stronger conversation partner. I gained a natural self-confidence, because I now have more professional knowledge.

Final paper: apply your new knowledge in your own organization

At the end of the program you will write a final paper under personal supervision in which you connect the core elements of the program with your daily work. By working on a current issue from your own practice, you immediately apply the newly acquired knowledge and skills in your organization. Formulating the problem and visualizing it through a process of exploration, diagnosis and an initial literature study is central to this. To prepare yourself properly, you will follow the one-day Problem Analysis module during the program.


For participants who are looking for a specific focus, we have put together three sample tracks: General Management, Strategy and Innovation. These tracks are based on substantive coherence and frequently made choices.
