  • Short description
A three-day workshop will serve as a case study in which the students participate. This is followed by a reflection phase during which literature review and research will be applied to their experiences. Finally participants have to document their key findings and lessons learned in a written seminar work and prepare a presentation to transfer this new knowledge to their fellow students.

  • The workshop
The three-day workshop will take place in the beautiful town of Davos, Switzerland. Students will cover their own expenses for accommodation, refreshments, and logistics. Further information will be conveyed during the kick-off session. The format has been tested and refined through our more than ten years of experience and received encouraging feedback from prior participants. The estimated cost for the "workshop package" is 200 CHF.


  • Students will know how communication and cooperation can be designed.Students will know fundamentals about motivation and rewarding schemes.In a case setting, students will learn about coordination and decision taking.



  • The concept of the workshop is to create a simulation of real business situations. Because there does not exist any absolute formula for success the students are empowered and encouraged to find their own solutions. The lecturers in this module offer active guidance and feedback during this process. The students are also given time to reflect upon their experiences as the workshop progresses by writing a personal "Leadership Diary".
