Study Trip Ecuador

Study trip to the rainforest in Ecuador: Exploring leadership qualities

Participants travel to Ecuador, where for the first few days, they go further into the Amazon by boat to spend time in the incredible ecosystem rainforest. The disruptive change of environment provides a captivating opportunity to explore leadership qualities in small groups and observe adaptation in the rainforest. You meet undisturbed nature and, on the other hand, very comfortable accommodation at an ecolodge. They are kept in balance in order to focus on selected leadership questions. Academic inputs, guided activities in small groups, self-observation and focused tasks sensitize participants with aspects of leadership on an individual level.

Travel on to Guayaquil: Lectures, workshops & company visits

After these days of full immersion, which require continuous adjustments at a peaceful pace and provide a lot of time outdoors, the group travels on to Guayaquil. We are hosted by a local University and this large city in Ecuador offers a change of scenery. Four days of lectures, workshops, fireside chats and company visits are included in the program. Furthermore, experiences of the past days will be embedded in leadership contexts by the highly recognized speakers. Here participants get in touch with tools to continue developing authentic leadership skills related to their individual background.


Master’s students. Bachelor’s students and external participants with min. 3 years of professional leadership experience. Good English communication skills required.
