Our online courses are designed for executives, managers, and professionals who value flexibility in learning and completing their studies. They provide development opportunities for individuals, teams, and organizations alike. They correspond in a variety of ways with the development of new knowledge and skills, for example, in the following situations:

For an individual who

  • is applying for a new job and wants to update their knowledge on the basics of leadership.
  • has been tasked with developing a new kind of service or innovation and needs the tools to do so.
  • has the responsibility for a strategic change project and wants a comprehensive package to help them succeed in their task.

For a team in which

  • each member must update their skills to leverage the customer and user-driven design process in developing a new service.
  • members are unfamiliar with the definition of data and the principles of its analysis. We want to stay up to date on this topic, and complete the course together in preparation for future challenges.

For an organization in which

  • a successful strategy requires the development of value-based thinking in marketing and sales. Completing the online course prepares executives for creating marketing and sales projects that support the strategy.
  • scarce financial resources challenge the profitability of an organization, and knowledge of the basics of economics requires reinforcement.
  • executives and unit managers need to be coached now, at the very latest, to lead change through operations globally. A need has been identified, and a change management course supporting self-development is being sought, which can be included as a part of a broader coaching program, if necessary.



  • You develop your expertise cost-effectively and flexibly, according to your personal schedule.
  • You gain an understanding of the key themes that every leader must master in a rapidly changing business environment.
  • You learn basic concepts and tools on each topic and will be able to lead people and projects better.

  • You strengthen and develop your organization's expertise cost-effectively, quickly, and without travel.
  • You will have the means to promote the independent study and development of your employees.
  • You implement the diversity of training packages through independently taken online courses.
  • You support staff's means of influencing job success through easily applicable frameworks, skills, and workbooks.
