Business Administration: Leadership and Change Management

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The Leadership and Change Management programme is a traveler’s guide for frontrunners (change agents and change crews) in organizations. In this specialization you will acquire evidence-based knowledge about the complexities of (planned) strategic interventions from multiple perspectives and in various settings including private companies, public organizations, and large-scale institutions.

All of the courses offered in the Leadership and Change Management specialization are taught with both macro (e.g., organizational/institutional) and micro (e.g., individual, behavioral) perspectives on the subject matter. At the same time you will learn about the complexities of implementing change ‘on the ground’, where plans and standard operating procedures usually provide little help and where leaders rise must to the occasion. By learning project management, rhetoric and political skills, and – last but not least – by becoming comfortable with your personal story, growth and vision (as ‘reflective practitioner’), you might learn to become that frontrunner (and, thus, ‘leader’) of change.


Learning goals:
• To have the advanced and original academic and research skills to contribute to the body of knowledge
• To have thorough knowledge of relevant theory and methods
• To have an academic approach to solving complex [business/economics] problems
• To have the professional social skills to interact with other professionals
• To have an horizon beyond the professional area

What`s Included

In the Leadership and Change Management specialization you will acquire evidence-based knowledge about the complexities of (planned) strategic interventions from multiple perspectives, including Political Science, Sociology and Psychology. As for theory, we believe in the value of theory from various disciplines as it serves your ability to adopt a helicopter view and strengthens their analytical ability to see what is important in change cases. Theory and evidence will also inform you about the potential consequences of leadership decisions that will define our workplaces of the future.

A professional is someone who is able to apply specialized knowledge to real life cases.
