‘ReThinking Management’ is what the Karls stands for
What do we mean by that?
In contrast to the prevailing concept of 'man-as-machine' in management studies, we believe you must understand what makes people tick, how they shape and are shaped by culture, and how society as a whole progresses for you to be successful at what you do. Accordingly, you as a young professional need to be qualified for management and leadership functions in business – but beyond that, in society. You need to be able to understand, accompany and actively design social and cultural change in management positions within organizations.
In the Karls Management M.A. program, then, we don’t spoon-feed you mere factual knowledge or a 'universal truth'. You do get insights into relevant fields, theories and practices. But the focus of our teaching is not on pure instruction. It is on the interaction between the lecturer and your group of students, where individual experiences and opinions are appreciated, discussed and worked on together. This enables you to re-think established paths and to tread new ones on the basis of an embodied sense of responsibility, empathy, sustainability, and expertise.
