Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Two Years of studies in Science and Engineering or similar knowledge level

Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student should be able to:

  • describe, discuss and synthesize models and theories of leadership
  • analyze and evaluate the leadership role in a changing, complex and global organizational context with particular emphasis on ethical problems in practical exercises and case studies
  • apply knowledge of leadership and reflect on theories and models of leadership in practical situations and case studies

     

Course content

The course is based on organizational and leadership theories of leadership, organization, power and authority from a labor management perspective. Emphasis will be placed on the relationship between leaders and led, communication, group processes and how they are managed in everyday work leadership and specifically in project management, change in stages and in crises.
