7. Personal development journey: Global Leadership Skills

Your personal development is a core element in the journey you will undertake during your year at Antwerp Management School.

At AMS, we look beyond the mere transfer of technical knowledge. As our mission statement explicitly mentions, we also want to stimulate your personal development. Our approach is straightforward: the better you feel as a person, the more confident you are when dealing with complicated business situations. The more accurate your self-image, the better you are able to work with other people and lead others in a responsible manner that commands respect.

Through the Global Leadership Skills, we build upon the three mission pillars of Antwerp Management School: Self-Awareness, Global Perspective and Societal Consciousness.

  • Self awareness: leads to stronger cooperation with others.
  • Global perspective: leads to a developed global mindset, allowing you to find better solutions to problems and complex issues.
  • Societal Consciousness: leads to sustainability in essential economic processes, a fundamental value in business.

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 exactly the same set of soft skills you will develop during the Global Leadership Skills: self-awareness, the ability to work collaboratively with others, leadership skills, openness to and respect for different perspectives, multicultural awareness.
