This program combines lectures, case studies, and a final group project for assessment. By the end of this seminar course, students will have gained a solid and structured understanding of what it takes to be a strong company leader. Through case studies, we will explore the successes and failures of leaders. More importantly, we will explore both how leaders become leaders, and the reasons why. Through lectures, we will see the importance of vision and how approaches to leadership differ. Furthermore, through daily projects and presentations, participants will gain a better understanding of their own leadership skills as well as practical knowledge of how to become a better and more effective leader.
