Added value for you and your company

  • Expert professors from a leading management school together with international field experts with real-world experience
  • Deeply anchored in professional practice, with highly interactive, practical cases studies
  • Concrete tools, directly applicable in participants' daily professional activities
  • Tools for strengthening and challenging participants' general management skills by introducing ethical leadership and sustainability into decision making
  • Opportunities to build valuable networks with other participants and industry representatives
  • A schedule compatible with professional commitments
  • Accredited by professional bodies and recommended by partner companies


The teaching method will combine theory and practical experimentation through case studies. In thematic conferences, recognized field experts will share their experiences (successes and failures), discuss specific ethics and compliance risks and conduct vigorous discussions with participants about how to articulate ethics and management in their companies.

Participants will integrate the knowledge they acquire in a team analysis of a complex case study, involving critical debates that encourage practice with group-based analysis.

A final personal paper also is required. This paper will either develop a concrete plan pertaining to one of the course topics or else describe the implementation of a certain number of aspects studied in a specific case chosen by the student (e.g. his or her own company). It will be presented in front of a jury of experts and other participants.
