Leadership, Sustainability and Business

Exchange programme

Doing business the traditional way is coming to an end. The only certainty nowadays is uncertainty. Companies no longer have to add shareholder value: they have to add stakeholder value.

The Leadership, Sustainability and Business programme is organised around the question: ‘What do you do when you don’t know what to do?’

As a participant, you must prepare to embrace uncertainty. You will challenge the existing business models from the perspectives of personal leadership, inclusiveness and sustainable thinking. And you will develop new ones to make a meaningful contribution to the 21st-century embedded economy. Learn to make a difference and become a game changer.

Project-based learning

This programme is entirely project-based. This means you should not expect lectures, exams, schedules and teachers telling you what to do. You must be comfortable with uncertainty – or be willing to learn it.

Coaches will support you in creating your own learning strategies, guide you through your learning process and act as sparring partners. You are fully accountable for your own learning process.
