We aim to train genuine, visionary, well-meaning and efficient managers
Joyful learning! The days of boring classroom work and endless face-to-face teaching are finally over.
Swiss Connect Academy offers courses, learning materials and pedagogical methods tailored to the needs of the working world and its required competencies of today and tomorrow. It stands for contemporary continuing education that takes advantage of digitalization without disregarding human aspects such as class and trainer.
Our management course consists of three modules and gives you the tools to become a responsible, far-sighted, inspiring and efficient leader.
General Management (12 weeks)
You will learn to make a connection between basic concepts of business management and the basic principles of economics in order to formulate economic, social and environmental goals for the company.
You will also learn how to provide your team with meaningful numbers and financial data to derive courses of action.
Personnel Management (10 weeks)
You will learn how to use modern HR management and leadership tools to ensure staff development, taking into account legal requirements.
Change Management (10 weeks)
You will learn to define and implement change measures or projects at team/group level.

At the end of the continuing education for management and leadership, you will receive a certificate of attendance from the Swiss Connect Academy. Optionally, you can register for the module exams with the SVF (Swiss Association for Leadership Training). For each module passed, you will receive a certificate from the SVF and upon successful completion of all modules, you will receive the “Certificate SVF-ASFC Management”.
If you also have the “Certificate SVF-ASVC Leadership”, you can register for the professional examination leading to the Federal Certificate of Competence in Leadership.
