Academic and economical knowledge is only one half of the coin when growing into the role of a successful leader or manager. Next to the Management Essentials Programs on leadership, strategy and finance, WHU encourages your personal growth by helping you to understand your interests, usual behaviors and stress behaviors and underlying needs through the Birkman. assessment.
