4. Global Leadership Skills

At AMS you embark on a personal development journey through which you will grow as a person and future leader. With the Global Leadership Skills track, we challenge and coach you to become more aware of who you are, how you cooperate with others, and what kind of career you want to pursue.

Throughout this journey, we will focus on these three levels of learning by working with a mixture of exercises, self-analysis instruments, moments of reflection, individual follow-up, and collective sessions and peer coaching. We will offer you relevant frameworks that help you understand who you are and how you relate to others. We will support you in understanding your strengths and needs, and defining your areas for growth. We will challenge you in developing a personal leadership claim that entails a global and sustainable perspective.

Global Leadership Skills development is more than a ‘nice to have’, it is a basic prerequisite for career success and recruiters will be assessing this when you apply for a job. Today’s employers are looking for an impressive set of soft skills when selecting young graduates. These include: self-awareness, the ability to work collaboratively with others, leadership skills, the capacity to adapt to new situations and to develop new skills, openness to and respect for different perspectives, multicultural awareness, and long-term and system thinking, to name just a few. This course aims to support you in developing these skills and in finding a match between who you are and what the world of employment needs; between your career ambitions and what employers are looking for.

5. Global Impact Project

You will work in international teams on a "global impact project". With these projects you support local initiatives, entrepreneurs, businesses, and people in developing countries or socially disadvantageous environments. You will create global impact and sharpen and train your responsible, creative and analytical mind as a future manager.

The Global Impact Project (GIP) allows you to dive into a societal challenge that can be best understood with an open, global mindset. We will select projects with global impact, or projects with local impact that require understanding of the global, interconnected environment.

At the core of the GIPs: the intersection of business (understanding the rationale of corporate decision makers, and the opportunities and challenges of multinational companies) and societal problems (that are impacted by such decisions, sometime caused by them, and might be mitigated by them). With this combination, the GIP fosters a critical perspective through the burning glass of the selected projects. It brings to mind and challenges culturally prescribed perceptions and taken-for-granted assumptions, regulations and behavior. You will learn to understand and deal with different cultural perspectives, social and regulatory conditions and frameworks in interpreting and tackling concrete business and/or societal problems.

You will learn the social and ethical implications of global businesses; you will engage in a dialogue with several stakeholders (i.e. communities, institutions, citizens) in order to arrive at valuable and applicable solutions. The outcome of this project is a a tangible solution to a well-defined problem of overarching societal relevance, leveraging and further driving your intercultural competence.

This intensive group work requires you also to reflect on your own working style, your own socialization and societal position, and how you can turn your broader horizon into a positive impact for others.
