The program is a one-year executive master, providing the professional and entrepreneurial skills necessary to open an office or to conduct a project in Eastern Europe.

About the master program
The English-language master “Leadership in Eastern Europe” is designed for aspiring executives in corporations, media agencies and NGOs, as well as social entrepreneurs. It is offered in a blended-learning format, combining distance-learning with in-house sessions in Berlin.
The program will present students with reality-based challenges in preparation for getting started in a different cultural and professional context. Leadership in Eastern Europe will train students in seven competence fields, providing them with an essential added-value vis-à-vis other professional training programs. The curriculum focuses on forming an understanding of the domestic and transnational institutional environment that can help you fulfill your professional assignments. Furthermore, students learn how to stay informed in unstable political environments, how to negotiate in intercultural settings, and how to pursue projects in a host country. Leadership in Eastern Europe is different from other programs on the region because it takes a hands-on, problem-solving approach.
Leadership in Eastern Europe is aimed at students who hold a first university degree, can prove their proficiency in English and have at least one year of post-graduate professional experience.
