Certificate “Philosophy and Leadership”

Thanks to the generous support of the Karl Schlecht Foundation, we are able to offer the certificate course “Philosophy and Leadership” at the Jesuit School of Philosophy in Munich. With the certificate course, we hope to attract committed students of all disciplines and those who have already gained initial professional and leadership experience and wish to assume responsibility in leadership positions later on in their careers.

The certificate can be acquired within three semesters if enrollment for the certificate takes place in the winter semester and within four semesters if enrollment takes place in the summer semester. The composition of lectures, seminars and exercises has several objectives:

1. philosophical lectures and seminars will provide a foundation that will enable you to engage in a reasoned discussion of existential and ethical issues of leadership.

2. a two-day exercise in meditation in the tradition of mindfulness meditation will strengthen you in the ability of self-awareness.

3. a basic lecture in business administration will introduce you to entrepreneurial thinking and action.

4. by participating in a seminar on leadership skills and an introduction to rhetoric, you will learn practical skills that a leader needs to master. Over the course of four evenings, you will meet leaders from business, politics and civil society who will be available to answer your questions.
