Why participate?
The world is changing rapidly. Today, more than ever, it calls for authenticity, transparency and leading from the heart.
True qualities of leadership cannot be learned from a book and they do not only concern people in management positions. Leadership concerns all of us.
To "lead" your life successfully, you need to think, speak and act in coherence with who you are. True leadership challenges us to be authentic at all times. The objective of the international week is to learn how to lead yourself and others and helping others achieve their greatest possible potential. A potential that can be measured in personal wellbeing, and that will thus naturally result into professional success.

What and how?
The international week unites students from different universities all over the world and offers the possibility to develop your personal leadership qualities. You may not only expect a traditional teaching of leadership theories or concepts, but also a very personal approach to better understanding your unique leadership potential. The program is strongly personal development oriented and requires you to be open minded and ready to work on yourself.

Language of instruction

English, B2 level strongly recommended, if it is not your native language. We can provide a free online placement test for you if you are unsure, please ask us.

Participation Fee

The teaching program of the SummerSchool “International Leaders” is free for students. It is part of the Internationalization at Home Strategy of the University. This means, at least four students from our German University will take part and thus have the opportunity to make an international experience at home without travelling. Students from partner universities will be preferred, but there are usually enough places for freemovers.
