The module Leadership and Management examines the topics of leadership concepts and methods in the field of tension between the paradigms of strategic management, systematic leadership theory and new leadership methods. Where are the traditions of strategic management still visible today? What is the significance of systematic leadership theory for the leadership and motivation of employees? How effective are new leadership methods? And how can leadership concepts and strategies be developed and evaluated in a constantly changing, complex environment? These are precisely the questions addressed by the one-week NYC Master Week – Leadership and Management.
