New manager at KI

Congratulations to your new role!

As a manager, you will face many different situations and responsibilities. The basis for a sustainable and efficient manager is to understand the managerial assignment, the leadership required and the organisation. The purpose of this program is to make you feel comfortable in your new role and your future career as a manager.


Program structure

The course consists of 8 modules which are taught twice a year, Swedish during the autumn and English in the spring. The course is taught one day a week, over five weeks. Digital preparation material for each module can be found in the education portal for New as a manager at KI. On the education portal, participants can also download the calendar invitation and see the detailed agenda for each day. 

The pedagogical approach for the program is a ‘flipped classroom’ approach, all modules have digital preparation material and exercises that can be found in the education portal. Here you will find information about the different modules, course material and exercises. Each digital module is followed by a mandatory physical meeting or webinar. The training session is based on the course material found online with an added deepened knowledge, focusing on cases discussions, and the dilemmas faced by course participants. 

Please note: To pass the course, all participants must take part of the study material ahead of respective modules.
