Mini Master Leadership & Vitality

Why the mini Master Leadership & Vitality?

The program in which you zoom in on the themes of leadership and vitality in various, accredited, Masterclasses. This program offers 3 modules from the accredited MBA training, possibly supplemented with the optional HRM masterclass. Due to the academic nature, we look at what is and is not scientifically proven about these subjects and we delve deeply into underlying visions and their practical applicability.

Why this program?

The biggest change in leadership is to respond to the challenges of our time. For several decades, leadership has been about inspiring and motivating employees. In this day and age this is especially important because of the battle for talent. Good people are scarce. We must therefore ensure an attractive working environment and employees must connect with the organization, with the vision and with the values ​​and standards. People consider personal development more important than material reward. The
commitment it gives by taking care of this also ensures optimal performance.

But the present time has an even greater challenge. The themes of meaning and sustainability play an increasingly important role for employees. And meaning is not only about work.

There is a lot of attention for social involvement and sustainability. Sustainability is also about the person himself. “Well-being” and “work-life balance” are just English words
every employee in the Netherlands knows them. But how do we make policy for this? How do we integrate this into business operations? How do we turn this challenge into an opportunity?

About the program

The Mini Master Leadership & Vitality program consists of 11 lecture days (or 14 with the optional HRM course) focused on a specific theme and several days you spend with your studygroup writing your final assignment. The first 3 days are wrapped together in a kick-off session focussing on the themes personal leadership and selfmanagement. A great way to get to know your fellow students, but also yourself! This kick-off session will be a combination of indoor and outdoor activities all focused on the theories about leadership and communication. During the other lecture days you will focus on Leadership & Vitality. These two themes will be given in 4 lecture days each. For the full program please download the brochure or contact one of our study advisors.

The teachers and professors are all experts in their own workfield which guarantees a translation of business theories in to pratical examples. the students are invited to bring in practical examples themselves so that they can be discussed during the lectures.
