Leadership for Innovation and Performance Happiness

In this course, you will discover the key variables of leadership, their relation to innovation and how they stimulate workplace happiness and increased performance. Supported by a mix of lectures, working on a group assignment and a company visit, students will work together and analyse relevant factors for an innovation supportive working environment. During the course, students will apply these insights outside the classroom and will work together with real-life companies in the Utrecht area. Within this course, you will be coached in small teams. The teams will be as varied as possible to provide a rich experience for the participants.

Project Management: From Theory to Practice

Today’s environment requires organisations to continuously change policies, processes or practices - changes often organised as projects: unique, temporary efforts, performed by multi-disciplinary teams. Projects need dynamic project managers that structure complex tasks, keep an overview and have great social skills. This course prepares you for all this by combining theoretical background with a practical approach to project management. You will learn about leading project management methods, work on project simulations in teams. Part of the assessment is the PRINCE2® Foundation Exam; you can earn the official certificate.
