Profile of the Leadership Talent Academy

We are pleased to announce the start of the Leadership Talent Academy in the winter semester 2020/21 - be a part of it!

What is the Leadership Talent Academy? 

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) offers its students and doctoral candidates a research-oriented education on top scientific level. In order to enable them to gain the necessary competencies as tomorrow's leaders and to fully exploit their professional and personal potential for the benefit of our society, personality development is offered as an additional tool beyond the professional curricula.

For this reason, a Leadership Talent Academy will be established over the next three years, based on a cooperation between the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Karl Schlecht Foundation (KSG). The exclusive support program is financed by the Karl Schlecht Foundation, which focuses on "Good Leadership".
