Leadership for Sustainability
is an international one year masters program located at Malmö University
in Malmö, Sweden
. It was founded in the fall of 2009 and we are actively building up a support network of alumni, professionals and leading academics who are all interested and seeing the program grow and succeed. The program is truly an international one, with students from such far away places as Indonesia and Colombia to others right here in Europe from Italy to the Czech Republic and of course Sweden, with representatives from everywhere in between with various backgrounds from wireless communications to development work. At the program we see the international make up as a definite strength that allows students to work with others from different cultures, education, and professional backgrounds that many times leads to an experience that can not be found in many other programs.
This program lays a solid foundation for working with project management, organisational development and broader issues of societal development and social change.
In this program you are trained to reflect and act in consideration of the relationship between culture and leadership, working with broad coalitions of stakeholders, cross-sector collaboration and social innovation.
This program consists of two major courses:
- Project management and organisation deals with models and strategies for organising projects and working with organisational development and challenges of sustainable development. You will undertake group work, look at inter-organisational projects and develop an essay or project work.
- Social entrepreneurship and innovation provides you with an understanding of entrepreneurial processes and innovation; communication, networks and collaboration; community and citizenship; and resource and support structures. At the end of this course you will research and write your Master’s thesis.
