Our Student's Journey

After several years of working closely alongside leaders of large organizations, I had a desire to transition from merely being an observer to a contributor. The knowledge I have gained at Steinbeis has been invaluable in helping to partner with leaders I support, becoming a more proactive involved employee. The interactive theory/real-life experience has been very helpful in applying the concepts in everyday working environments. For me personally, I learn much better through real-life application. Something that really helped a lot was when the facilitators would preset us with real client problems that they faced in their careers.

The Study Program offers advanced methods to explore the state of organizations and unlock the hidden dynamics of the psychology of change, fundamental aspects in the age of acceleration. Those methods help me becoming an expert of the change and ultimately finding ad-hoc interventions to unleash individual and organizational potentials as people leader in the short term and as business coach in the future.

Each module is carefully thought out considering the scope of issues and problems we deal with within organizations. It is very insightful to learn factual theories and practices related to organizational issues and prepare a knowledge bank for myself while looking for solutions in the real world.
