Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

The integrated leadership course is designed to raise the participants’ awareness of the intricate workings of leadership in today’s society and economy, and to help the participant develop skills, insights, and competencies necessary for their future career. The participant will reflect upon personal leadership style and role, the dynamics of team leadership, authority, conflict, and complexity, and will be able to draw for each from the three sources of leadership. Integrated Leadership is a distinct and individual course, however it is an integrated part of the programme.


Leadership should always be seen as an integrated practice in professional settings, i.e. the industry, the firm and the specific challenges that confront reflexive-practitioners. The leadership course is grounded on these assumptions and the course is organized as three interlinked parts.


In the course “Shipping as a business and as a market” integrated leadership begins when the participants have finished the first module, because we then have the opportunity to put light on the leadership dimension in the beginning of the Programme. This will make the student aware of their own responsibility and challenges as leaders in the context of the industry and their organizations.


In the course “International economics and market analysis” there will be a need of having a constant focus on leadership to make it explicit that they should both be strong analytical managers with an industry perspective and they should recognize the leadership challenges and responsibilities that they have.


In the course “Operational management and information technology”, the primarily focus will be on how the participants should have a balanced focus on leadership and management. Management understood primarily as a rational and analytical function and leadership as a relational and facilitating function.


Description of the teaching methods
The course is very interactive and will combine lectures, discussions, group work and case presentations.
Feedback during the teaching period
The feedback
Feedback is given to the student together with the grade when written and oral exams have been evaluated.

The evaluation
At the evaluation unit at CBS’s Economic & Analysis department we ask you to evaluate the overall course. In other words if there has been exercise classes and lectures the evaluation should include both. We evaluate every course and faculty to secure and strengthen the professional level of the offered course.
