Curricula –
Your comprehensive training path at isb

The isb has designed its further education in the form of curricula on various topics of the professional and organizational world. In all curricula, professional work and control is viewed from a systemic perspective. The aim is to further qualify the participants in the creative handling of professional roles. They develop their professional identity and personal integrity. In terms of organizations, they develop understanding of the inner life and logic of systems and acquire craft tools for the development and management of organizational processes.

The entire continuing education program is designed for two years of learning within the group: the second year's advanced curriculum builds on the basic curriculum of the first year. It is also possible to complete only the basic curriculum or connect the advanced curriculum in a timed manner. Both curriculum levels are completed with a certificate. At the end of the second year, qualification certificates can be acquired. The master program is used for the further intensive connection to the isb.

In addition to the curricula listed below, we also offer inhouse and short curricula.

The basic curricula of isb provide basic knowledge and methods of the systemic approach. Personal professional development is also of great importance. The exchange with the teacher and the other learners supports the reflection of the learned content and personal progress. The curricula consist of six three-day blocks. This allows sufficient time for personal growth both for the individual and the group.
