Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to 

students have developed a conceptual understanding of central issues of management with a focus on leadership, strategy and change management and leadership and can apply this in case studies and concrete situations. The introductory course is aimed in particular at the following job profiles:
- Managers who want to achieve the strategic goals of the company or the area for which they are responsible with their employees (human resources).
- Consultants, trainers and coaches who want to implement changes in organizations on an organizational, group and individual level.
- Employees in HR departments who want to support managers in central HR activities (recruiting, performance management, development, etc.).

Subject of course

The course explains how companies function as organizations (Performance Core), how the interaction between strategy, organization, personnel and leadership takes place (Leadership) and what possibilities exist for changing organizations (Change Management & Ambidexterity). The aim of the course is to build up competence in the factors that influence behavior in organizations and how learning and change processes can be designed. Accordingly, in addition to the basics of management and behavior in organizations, the central influencing factors of leadership, HRM, groups and teams as well as structures and processes and corporate cultural values and norms are placed in the context of behavior control.

Teaching methods

The lecture with theory inputs and illustrative case studies follows a classic design of international business schools with the 3-day block. Accordingly, (voluntary) pre-module assignments are used to start the course at a uniform level. The post-module assignment at the end of the course serves to test the ability to apply the new content to concrete practical cases.
The course material is developed on the basis of scientific principles, which are underpinned by case studies from management practice and enriched with current research results. The course serves as a basis for further specialization in the Bachelor's program.
