"Leaders are the crown jewels of any organization: their development therefore takes on an intrinsically strategic character," says our Dean Prof. Wolfgang Güttel, emphasizing the importance of leadership development. "We as the TU Wien Academy for Continuing Education support companies, non-profit organizations or administrative organizations in developing their crown jewels in a targeted, individual and effective way. Together, we create suitable learning architectures to impart knowledge, orchestrate the exchange of experiences across different areas and promote the personal development of leaders. Effective leadership always results from current skills and from the appropriate mind-set or leadership identity. We know how to develop both – skills and mind-set – in a targeted way! Your crown jewels are in good hands with us."

Growing challenges for companies

Topics such as effective leadership, strategic change and ambidexterity are more relevant than ever in these turbulent times. Companies and leaders must meet the challenges of rapid technological as well as societal change:

  • The consequences of the pandemic are changing the way we work.
  • Global trends such as digitalization, individualization and new work are forcing companies to change.
  • Technical innovations regularly overtake themselves.
  • Combating climate change will place more and more demands on business and society.
  • The economic consequences of the war in Ukraine are not yet foreseeable and will continue to have an impact for a long time.

Customized programs for maximum impact  

The development of individual training programs takes place in close consultation with the respective organization or company. First, we take sufficient time to analyze the specific needs and define the expectations and goals. Then, in a joint multi-stage process, we create a customized training concept and select the appropriate lecturers. ACE takes care of the complete execution of the program as well as ongoing quality assurance. After completion of the training, we issue confirmations of participation or certificates and, if necessary, arrange for crediting to open program offerings.

The advantages are obvious: When developing a customized program, we focus on the individual needs and wishes of the company. We will tailor the content, timing and location of the program to your requirements. In addition, we support companies in the selection of suitable participants and speakers with an objective view from the outside.
