The course focuses on four main pillars of good management: management functions supported by critical analysis of the context in which managers operate, leadership, working groups and change management. In all aspects of modern society, management and change leadership play an increasingly important role. Modern businesses and organizations operate in a highly competitive and globalized environment characterized by high costs for the acquisition and use of the necessary resources, turbulent social, economic and technological changes and increasing demand for socially responsible management practices. It is therefore obvious that effective management of changes in organisations, as well as an understanding of leadership practices leading to effective working groups and organisational performance, are key factors in achieving their objectives and objectives.
Successful management requires a combination of basic skills and understanding and use of tools and methods to solve important and complex problems faced by businesses and organisations at different levels of management, so that managers can participate actively and productively in making appropriate decisions and implementing them. An understanding of the different organisational, cultural and environmental factors is also required.
The course prepares students for these requirements, providing comprehensive knowledge and experience of the functions of management supported by critical analysis of the context in which change managers and leaders operate. The teaching method is interactive and is based on case analysis, audiovisual material, mini-simulation projects and seminars by specialized market executives.
