It provides an opportunity to understand strategy and to develop strategic thinking conceptually. 

What You will learn
During the lectures, business case analyses are conducted with foreign lecturers, and in small teams, the managers prepare the Strategy evaluation project of the chosen organization. It aims to develop the ability to make interdisciplinary business decisions to successfully implement the organization's vision, mission and goals using strategic management principles.
A Strategic Assessment of your chosen organization is created by the management team.
1 and 2 semester
To help prepare for a leadership role, nationally and internationally, and in particular, to lead in a multi-stakeholder environment. This study module is designed to stimulate and help implement tangible changes in the behaviour and perception of the study participants as leaders.
What You will learn

The leadership module is based on self-analysis and feedback. In the module, we use non-traditional learning methods such as personal leadership research and individual coaching sessions, feedback from your study mates, a leadership reflection journal and the resulting TEDx-style talk. Thanks to them, you will get to know yourself better as a manager, develop your competencies, gain confidence and learn to lead an organization even more effectively.   

In the module, we aim to create an exceptional environment that encourages sharing personal experiences and learning how to provide and receive feedback from other managers at the same level, which is still a relatively rare phenomenon in a typical business environment. A year-round group of leaders learning together becomes not only students but also each other's teachers, which many describe as an invaluable experience.

Leading change and Innovations
2 semester. Final thesis
Instead of the final master's thesis, an international consulting project, PAR, is taking place to test one's leadership on a global scale and apply the knowledge gained in studies in assessing the challenges of an unfamiliar organization.
What You will learn

Study participants can participate in a business consulting project in Johannesburg and Cape Town (Republic of South Africa). During the visit, students work in DIFFERENT teams AND organizations - together with the leaders of the PAR organization, they clarify the main challenges; TOGETHER with the team, they prepare a change plan, which they present to the organization at the end of the visit.  

This task helps to develop creativity and determine the essence of the problem to make decisions. The knowledge of strategy, business, management, change and innovation management acquired during the year is applied.  

Konsultacinio projekto metu vadovai mokosi klausyti ir išgirsti kitus komandos narius, keisti savo reaktyvią elgseną į proaktyvią, geba identifikuoti strategines problemas skirtingo sektoriaus organizacijose ir pateikti joms pokyčių valdymo pasiūlymus.

Preparation and presentation of a strategic change plan to managers or the board of an organization operating in PAR.
