Strategy and Leadership Practices

Master’s level
7,5 credits (ECTS)


This advanced course in Strategy and Leadership Practices focuses on strategy and leadership as something being done. In other words, strategy is not something that an organisation has and leader is not something you are, but rather something actors in organisations do. The purpose of the course is to be able to understand this “doing” in relation to various challenges and strategic problems in both private and public sector organisations. The ambition of the course is to prepare students to critically analyse, discuss and evaluate the practices of strategic work and leadership in organisations through reading academic literature and working with cases and real life examples.

Prerequisites and selection


To be eligible for the course Strategy and Leadership Practices, the participant must fulfil the entrance qualifications for one of the Master of Science programmes at the Graduate School.
