Course content

The program is constructed as an integrated learning program consisting of the main areas:
1. An information part where we go through important topics within the areas of leadership, self-leadership, super-leadership and self-managed teams, as well as the psychological and the theoretical background for these topics.
2. A process part that aims to make participants aware of their own conduct and thinking process, their strategies' strengths and weaknesses. This creates the basis for making a personal development plan that the leaders will work on during the course.
3. A project part where the theoretical and practical learning will be adapted to one's own situation. This project part will culminate in a project paper. The project may be based on the participant's result of a 360 degree evaluation of one's own style of self-leadership and be summed up with integration and discussion of the relationship between the leader's experiences, personal development and new research based knowledge in psychology and leadership. Other, more traditional projects with focus on the program's topics may also be chosen.

1. Session - Introduction and overview

Teaching and learning activities

The Program is teached over two semesters. Participants will be signed up for each semester; the 1. Semester lecture course code is BMP 2701 and the 2. Semester course code BMP 2702. 

Students will work on a project paper throughout the course and may work individually or in groups of two to three students. At each session there is allotted time for guidance. Students will get an introduction into relevant methods and analysis techniques that may be used in the project paper, as well as feedback on progression. 


In all BI Executive courses and programs, there is a mutual requirement for the student and the course responsible regarding the involvement of the student's experience in the planning and implementation of courses, modules and programmes. This means that the student has the right and duty to get involved with their own knowledge and practice relevance, through the active sharing of their relevant experience and knowledge.
