Strategic Management and Leadership
The module presents the integration of three different disciplines (Strategic, Management and Leadership), under an applied philosophy thinking to achieve the impossible. Visions need leadership to develop strategies, the roadmaps through which management coordinates the execution of thoughts and actions. Leaders however must also be philosophers to assess situations with wisdom, ethics, values and rationale. The module presents the philosophy behind each discipline, their integration and their execution through various frameworks, methods, practices, metrics, case studies and examples.
The students will understand the impact of leadership in strategy and the impact of strategy in management. They will be able to work in groups and individually on practical assignments that will help them demonstrate their strategic thinking, leadership characteristics, management skills, but also their philosophy on understanding situations and decision making.
