Executive MBA in Business & IT Module “Leadership & Cooperation” Completed in July
Our Executive MBA in Business & IT participants are making rapid progress and for some of them, this module already marked the last before working on their master’s thesis. Starting 10 July, the module “Leadership & Cooperation” focused on fundamental aspects of corporate leadership in the digital era, including questions such as: How leaders can (and must!) ensure cooperation and coordination in networks and their own organizations.
The latest research findings and specific requirements for efficient leadership of individuals and teams were presented by TUM chairs of Prof. Dr. Claudia Peus, Prof. Dr. Isabell M. Welpe as well as Prof. Dr. Helmut Krcmar. The module provided participants with practical insights on leadership and value creation in and through networks while outlining criteria for the assessment of leaders.
Guest lecturers providing glimpses into change cultures in different organizations included Andreas Kuhndörfer (BSH), Dr. Carlos Härtel (GE Global Research), Chris Penningroth (former Air Force pilot) as well as Max Peterson (Director Amazon Web Services).
This module also marked the presentation of the results of our participants’ individual leadership profiles, presented and evaluated by Dr. Ellen Schmid and Dr. Kristin Knipfer of the TUM Chair of Research and Science Management. Compiled for each individual participant, the leadership profiles evaluate several dimensions of leadership performance, including active problem solving, personal values and rapport with individual employees, based on self-assessments and team evaluations. We would also like to take this opportunity to wish all participants the best of luck for finalizing their master’s theses.
From 11 – 15 September, the upcoming Executive MBA in Business & IT Modul will focus on “Ownership of Enterprise & Corporate Governance” at the University of St. Gallen. This module will explore corporate leadership in various forms of organizations together with the role of technically qualified CIOs and IT leaders within the broader organizational context.
