About the course

Grow your leadership competence in challenging economic and political contexts.

At the heart of business success lies a clear and well-communicated strategy. A sound strategy is one that is based on good choices about how a firm will compete in the future, how it will serve its chosen market and how it will bring its capabilities to that market.
