International Leiden Leadership Programme


To have an overview of the theories of good leadership, train and develop your communication skills and acquire an insight into your personal strengths and weaknesses as a leader. These are the goals of the International Leiden Leadership Programme (ILLP).

Participants discuss the crucial elements of good leadership and their implications for the development of their own style. In addition, participants are encouraged to reflect individually on their own “strengths and weaknesses” in the form of a self-evaluation and the Personal Leadership Roadmap.

Throughout the International Leiden Leadership Programme, students are taught in a small, interdisciplinary and international group. They are also coached individually by an experienced coach.

The ILLP is an extracurricular honours programme worth 5 EC, taught between late January and June.

The International Leiden Leadership Programme has the aim to increase students' understanding of themselves, their strengths and weaknesses and their interactions with others, thereby increasing their effectiveness. To that end, the programme consists of:

  • assessment,
  • training sessions,
  • seminars and
  • coaching.
