Dynamic Project Leadership
In this interdisciplinary course you will develop a multimedia advertising campaign based on your study abroad experiences, to encourage other young foreigners to visit Copenhagen. Through brainstorming, project development and outcome evaluation you will train your personal leadership competencies in an international environment.
You will create a mock business firm and, together with teammates, you will work for Wonderful Copenhagen, a Danish government agency promoting Copenhagen internationally. At the end of the course, you will pitch your project to executives at Wonderful Copenhagen. One project will actually be implemented as part of Wonderful Copenhagen’s campaign to attract more young foreigners to the city.
The course is inspired by the curriculum of the Kaospilots (‘Chaos Pilots’), an independent school affiliated with the University of Aarhus. The purpose of the Kaospilot School is to create positive societal change through personal growth and enterprise.
