Innovative Lernmethoden – Von- und miteinander lernen

Sie studieren zusammen mit Executives aus den verschiedensten Bereichen, aber mit einheitlich hohem Level an Erfahrung. Das Lernen von- und miteinander ist der Schlüssel, um innovative Lösungen für komplexe Probleme zu finden, die Sie in praxisnahen Fallstudien und Team-Projekten umsetzen. Unser "Flipped-Learning"-Ansatz schafft dafür den nötigen Raum, da Sie theoretische Inhalte vorab selbstständig online erarbeiten.
