The Institute of Executive Capabilities (IEC) was founded by Prof. Dr. Mario Vaupel  in 2011, after having over 20 years’ experience as business executive and quality management for universities and business schools.

Guiding Principle

With innovative and consequently transfer oriented study and certificate programmes the IEC strenghtens the capability of employees and executives to handle increasing performance requirements on the basis of future oriented competences, mindsets and practices.

Thereby, all programmes of the IEC are guided by the idea of to strenghten the creative role of employees and executive, and, in particular, their ecomonic, social and ecological responsability. 

"The choice of modules suits me very well. My practical work is substantiated theoretically. The cooperation between the students is great fun, and the exchange between practice and theory from different perspectives is very helpful. I can recommend the IEC unconditionally."
