THIS TERM IS ALL ABOUT ONLINE EDUCATION
AND WE ARE GOING ONLINE

What makes a good leader? How to be one? And what does it mean to be a leader in the first place?

There are no simple answers to these questions. But one thing is sure: in times of current crisis, right leaders are needed more than ever.

Erasmus Leadership Academy Online is a free 5-week online training program, created in collaboration with AIESEC and Extraordinary Life, with the ultimate goal to make you a proactive and effective leader of your personal life, your current or future teams, and be able to deal with challenging situations (such as our current pandemic). We will guide you to get closer to answering the above questions by assisting you to build self-awareness, communication, and team management skillset.

Each technique was presented by a group in a practical way and it was inspiring for me. This course generally inspired me on how to improve communication and leadership skills. I also got familiar with my strengths and weaknesses through feedback I received from our trainers and other students.
