Dean's Message

The Dean’s Welcome Message

Globethics Open and Executive Course Programme, Spring/First Semester 2023

Amele Ekue Academic Dean

Dear course participants and instructors,

Have you thought about the greatest gift you ever received? You may think of special presents offered to you by loved ones, and particularly those attached to memories you have made together. Sometimes, the greatest gifts are immaterial, and yet full of promises. Your decision to develop your knowledge and competencies is a gift to yourself and the potential that it bears to become an ethical leader.

You will find ample occasions during your respective course programmes to engage with a wealth of topics around ethical leadership. Concise study unit texts, a plethora of practically grounded resources, including inspiring audio-visual material, learning outcome-oriented assignments, and a series of periodically offered live sessions for direct and personalised exchanges with your dedicated and high-profile course instructors, will facilitate your study process.

Each course will also offer you the possibility to learn more about the various educational offers of the Globethics Academy, our online library, our publishing house and our global network of higher education institutions and educators, our Consortium on Ethics in Higher Education. You will certainly also enjoy our Blue Table webinar series, this year under the title: “What Are We Learning For?”, offering you the possibility to be part of inspiring conversations around cutting-edge ethical issues with experts from around the world. And, why not consider another course in our programme, or opt for the certificate track of our courses? We have preferential rates for those among you who desire to change their track. Your course coordinator, and our entire team, will be pleased to respond to any of your complementary questions and to guide you further in any domain of your interest. Please do not hesitate to contact us:

Together with my colleagues, I welcome you cordially to our Globethics learning community and wish you a most enriching journey, filled with many new experiences, encounters – and opportunities for becoming an ethical leader to make our world more just, inclusive and sustainable.

Yours sincerely,

Amélé Ekué
Academic Dean
