The Courses

Classic Leadership and Organization Dilemmas - 15 ECTS

How can we manage an organization's simultaneous needs for exploration of new opportunities and exploitation and more specifically how do we allocate scarce resources between the two? How do we recognize great leaders among the crazies? How do we sustain commitment in the face of adverse or ambiguous outcomes? How do we come to believe that a leader has succeeded or failed? What should we value in leadership and individuals who are leaders?

Contemporary International Management Paradoxes - 15 ECTS

This course places the firm in its business environment and takes its starting point in the highly competitive business environment of the 21st century; global and dynamic, internet-based with competition often based on intangible resources, coupled with demands for ethical firm behavior and a sustainable ecological footprint. Here, firms face a series of seemingly paradoxical demands for being global and local, standardized and diverse, responsive and integrated, innovative and efficient.
