The Center for Responsible Leadership combines topics of leadership, business ethics, and social responsibility: We innovate, design and deliver leadership and personal growth learning journeys to WHU’s in-class and online MBA Programs and also cater towards professionals in a leadership role in many of our Executive Education programs.
The reflection of one’s own leadership purpose and values are the key for any leader to motivate and inspire others.

Initiatives and Projects

SELF Lab

The SELF Lab is a course delivered in WHU’s Online MBA Program. It contains a learning journey all about the personal and career development specifically tailored towards our online MBA students. It includes a status quo reflection (START), a rich set of self-paced learning interventions (EXPLORE), a translation towards the implementation of personal growth topics (LEAD) and a feed-forward learning intervention (FORWARD).

Some of the contributions to our post-experience programs include topics such as:

•  Delivering personality assessments & debriefings
•  Offering workshops on team development & intercultural communication
•  Setting up field trips to emerging markets

General Management Plus Program

For almost a decade, WHU Executive Education collaborated with BOOKBRIDGE to design and deliver the General Management Plus Program. This credit-granting Executive Education Program equips high potentials with knowledge and skills in leadership and strategy. At the same time, our participants immerse into a highly experiential learning journey as a social entrepreneur in an emerging market. During this learning journey, leadership purpose, value, intercultural communication, and virtual collaboration in dispersed teams are key topics to navigate.

The Center of Responsible Leadership contributes to further Executive Education Programs:


•  Leadership Essentials Program
•   The Essence of Coaching for Senior Leaders Program
•  Advanced Management Program for Senior Professionals
•  Strategic Decision Making Program
