All credits are transferable to an Executive Certificate or the Executive MPA. Choose from the course catalogue.
By combining four selected Executive Seminars and Skills Trainings (11-12 days in total), participants can focus on a specific area of interest and choose from seven academic certificates. Participants earn 11 ECTS points which can be transferred to a master programme.
In a range of five- to seven-day programmes, professionals develop key competencies and skills in leadership, management, innovation, digitalisation, communication, EU governance and decision-making. Find our more.
