Global Management is a programme specially designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to become an effective leader in diverse business contexts and varied intercultural settings.
The programme acknowledges that contemporary markets are increasingly complex and dynamic in terms of culture and demand, that information and communication are crucial for success, and that social responsibility for sustainability and corporate entrepreneurship are crucial.
Here, you will develop the skills required to become a business leader, but also skills for other organisational roles, for example, when leading projects.
