AMS Academy is a learning environment for professionals, researchers and entrepreneurs. Within the AMS Academy, we are developing new concepts for professional education. The fundamentals of every program are: academic knowledge and how to implement it. Participants will be challenged to collaborate in teams on real-life cases. They work on skills that help them to: take ownership of change, apply new knowledge and create new solutions in a co-creating setting. Always with an entrepreneurial mindset.

To create impact, you need to have both the knowledge - and the skills and mind-set to lead to change. AMS Academy for professional education aims to create a leaning environment that bridges exactly those two.

“I firmly believe that within a learning environment everybody is both a student and teacher. People with different backgrounds: academics, professionals, and entrepreneurs - all bring their knowledge and experience. The AMS Academy provides an equal environment helps to create “shared knowledge” and implemented this in real life cases.”
