Leadership and Teambuilding Boot Camp

1. Course Description 

The Leadership Development programme (2 credits) includes theory learning followed by an intensive Leadership Bootcamp which is a unique course that instils foundational leadership values and skills into incoming students while bringing the class together and creating esprit de corps. Students will learn and apply basic leadership concepts and skills through hands-on learning and work individually and in team-based settings to solve complex and dynamic problems. This includes, but is not limited to, analysing leadership case studies, negotiating obstacle courses, performing basic survival skills, conducting land navigation, and more.
