Programme Contents and Methodology:

UNILEAD focuses on three key areas:

  1. Project Management. This includes courses on Methodology of Project Management and Financial Management in projects.
  2. Strategic Management & Academic Leadership. This includes courses of theoretical basics and practical tools for the development and implementation of Strategic Management and acquisition of competences in the area of Leadership.
  3. Human Resource Management. This includes courses on Instruments of Human Resource Development, Conflict Management and Communication.

In order to complement these three modules, additional topics, such as Risk Management, Team and Key Competences, and Acting with Confidence, are touched upon. In addition, a web-seminar on the topic of “Digital Transformation in Higher Education” is integrated into the curriculum.

The core of the entire programme is an individual and practice-oriented change project that participants are required to propose in their application.
