Our Modules

Technique & the Human

Origins

The focus of this module is to understand how technology has always influenced the existence of human beings and the way they relate to their environment. We look into the historical context of technology, learn about cutting edge, but „invisible“ innovation and how to use historical knowledge to shape the future.

Technological Revolutions

Origins

This module is about the human-technical relationship that has been able to give birth to modern society, industry and economy. It asks questions about humans as technical beings, our communication with language, algorithms or devices and the role of art in technology.

Work Habits

Roles

Having the right approach to work is a key for success. The module discusses topics like the management of complex problems, how to build personal core competences and design your talents in disruptive work-environments and through failure.

Leadership

Roles

As one of the most fundamental modules of the program, leadership focuses on building an entrepreneurial mindset for yourself and in others, while navigating and managing situations in a complex world. It teaches how to deal with multiple variables at once and lead effectively in an age of uncertainty.

Human in Business

Roles

The goal of this module is to get a better sense of the role of the human in his environment. It’s about whether or not a single person can influence his actions and surroundings through a certain mindset and how digital work environments have and will change the way we deal with the people around us.

Social Skills

Context

This module is about big topics like life, relationships and death. It deals with one’s emotions, fears and perspectives on great challenges in life. At the center of the module is the personal operative model - it’s what we call the operating system of every human being.

Mindset

Context

Acquiring a future-oriented mindset is necessary to have an impact. In this module you will discuss geopolitical processes and relational communication strategies to understand dynamics and forces on a global as well as an organizational level.

Ethics and Values

Context

This module is about the foundations we build our lives upon. Values, ethical frameworks and psychological stability help us navigate in a digital world and make sure that we’re always aware of the goals we want to achieve and the prices we’re willing to pay for them.

Personal Project

Context

This module consists of skill-oriented topics like critical thinking, innovative thinking and - arguably most importantly - learning and changing one’s patterns. These qualities help seeing the world as it is while questioning the status quo and even one’s own point of view.
