Most courses take place on-site in the summer term 2022 - TWO courses (groups 2 & 4) will be online

Management Skills summer term 2022

Management Skills is not a ‘normal’ seminar as you may know it from your regular studies. Instead, it is rather a workshop or a training which is held (mostly) by external trainers with long-time experience in coaching. Due to its interactive focus you will be forced to engage in discourse and to deal with your personal strengths and weaknesses.  In contrast to other seminars concentrating primarily on your study topic, our trainers will focus explicitly on your performance inside and in front of a group and give you individual feedback referring to your personal accomplishments. Thus, your presentation skills and your ability to manage a group work will improve significantly if you are willing to participate actively in the workshop.

Please note: For the moment and the upcoming semesters all courses are taught in English.
