Participants Explore Blockchain Technology and Complete Module “Leadership & Cooperation”

The much-discussed Blockchain technology, responsible for authentication processes in digital cryptocurrencies, was at the center of a special TUM event on 12 March, 2018. Headed by Prof. R.A. Farrokhnia of the Columbia Business School, “Blockchain’s Disruptive Potential” exposed the technology’s extensive impact.

The event was attended by MBA students of Columbia Business School together with current participants and alumni of our Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation. One of the most important learnings from the event: The impact of Blockchain extends far beyond digital currencies and banking, with long-term consequences for business segments such as insurance, automotive, and renewable energies, as illustrated by numerous case examples.

Our EMBA-participants also completed an important step towards graduation by successfully wrapping up the second part of their module “Leadership & Cooperation” from 15 – 17 March, 2018.

The module highlighted the role of intercultural communication from a leadership perspective in the lecture “Leading Teams And Individuals Across Cultures” with Maxim Egorov and Ulf Steinberg (TUM Chair of Research and Science Management) and guest speaker Dr. Karianne Kalshoven. Approaches to successful employee management assisted by digital communication tools were the focus of the lecture “Leading Virtual Teams” by Prof. Dr. Helmut Krcmar, TUM Chair for Information Systems.

As part of the module, participants also received their individual leadership profiles for a comprehensive assessment of their strengths and areas of improvement. The profiles are organized by our Leadership Development Team consisting of Dr. Ellen Schmid and Dr. Kristin Knipfer, who also lectured on “Personal & Leadership Development”.

Preparations are also kicking into high gear for welcoming our Class of 2020 of the Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation here in Munich with a kick-off event on 24 April. Aside from executive management training with a focus on innovation and entrepreneurial thinking, participants can also look forward to developing their own business projects under expert mentorship, supported by a foreign research excursion to UC Berkeley and Silicon Valley.
