Why this program?

UN 2030 Agenda influencing executives and organizations
The topic of sustainability has become indispensable, especially since the UN 2030 Agenda. No organization and no responsible manager or executive can avoid dealing with this topic. New emerging technologies are increasingly challenging organizations and managers: How do they manage employees and companies responsibly?

At the interface of management and technology
Leaders need to have a good understanding of the disruptive technologies affecting their industry and organization. Managers with no technical background gain insight into disruptive technologies & learn how to evaluate them for their businesses.

Experienced lecturers: Academic & practical input
Well experienced lecturers from academia and the business world will present state-of-the-art theory and empirical data that discuss this topic.

With academic and practical experts and peers, participants will have the opportunity to network, exchange challenges and ideas and to establish connections that will help them in the long term to continuously work on being a sustainable leader.

Project work – Creating an action plan
During the certificate program, participants will generate and develop ideas which they can apply in the short-term within their organizations to focus more on responsible leadership.
