How do we ensure that MPM is corona proof?

  • We postponed the start of the course from 29/9 to 13/10 to make sure our building will be completely ready to receive the participants in a safe way:
    • 1.5m social distance anytime, anywhere
    • Personal dinner package instead of an open buffet
    • Circulation plan, disinfectant gel, extra cleaning, etc.
  • The two-day Leadership Lab is scheduled for November 17-18 and will continue with all necessary preventive measures unless a new lockdown is issued
  • Two courses are organized almost entirely online, which means that the transfer to the campus is slightly less (students will be able to follow classes online instead of on campus, on average of 1 Tuesday out of 3). These two courses are "Innovation and Change Management" and "Process management and digital transformation".
  • We have a backup plan ready that can be started immediately in case of a new lockdown where all lessons will be given online.

Learning objectives

  • A broad and thorough knowledge of the most recent management methods and techniques;
  • Recognize policy challenges independently and in group, analyze them, report on them verbally and in writing, and contribute significantly to their solution;
  • Develop solutions for public policy challenges, test these critically (on an ethical, societal and legal level), argue them, and have them accepted;
  • Perform and excel in leadership and facilitating (staff) positions at the diverse levels of government.

"We now look differently and better at ourselves and the organizations within which we work. Right now, we have more tools to critically build a strong and sustainable government and society."
