Steinbeis IEC

Institute of Executive Capabilities, Steinbeis University Berlin

In light of the recent Coronavirus outbreak, we would like to announce that the study activities at our institute, both for on-going programs as well as new semester intakes, will still go on as per the initial schedule. LIVE virtual seminars, in combination with multimedia materials, will replace any in-class sessions until the situation is stabilized, and travel restrictions (which are enforced in many countries) are lifted.

As a study and development partner for employees who want to acquire up-to-date knowledge and relevant skills, we offer scientific and practice-oriented study and development programs for the world of leadership and work in the 21st century.

"The educational concept of the IEC single-mindedly pursues the objective of sustainable employability of the students. This becomes particularly evident in the way how theoretical academic contents are tapped into for professional practice in an almost ideal-typical manner."
