Coursera - Register to the new online course "From Followership to Leadership"

More than 215 000 individuals have already registered to one of the 14 online courses offered on Coursera (Plus) by EDHEC Business School. Various topics have been covered so far: Climate change and sustainability investing, strategic foresight, introduction to EdTech...

 

Since February 2024, a new original course has been proposed: "From Followership to Leadership" - subtitled "Give me the follower and I'll give you the leader!".
