when 2 July 2018 - 6 July 2018
language English
duration 1 week
credits 2 ECTS
fee EUR 695

The course gives an overview of different theories on (business) leadership, the influence of globalization and culture in an international setting. In a globalized world management and leadership become more internationally oriented too. Different cultures around the globe lack a universal management style and firms expanding into new geographical areas do not always realize this. Our colleagues from Rhodes University, South Africa will focus on questions like: Does global leadership really exist or is it a myth? Can management from one part of the world resolve conflicts that arise in other regions? What does it take to become a manager of the future?
