Embark on a captivating journey through the captivating lives of Bohemian dissidents, wise sages, and courageous resistors. Explore their profound impact on Czech history, as they challenged norms and ignited movements of change. Join us as we delve into their stories, revealing the rich tapestry of courage, resilience, and enduring legacies. Apply now and get an early bird discount of 1490 USD!

Through academic study, dialogue, personal observation, cultural experiences, and contextual analysis students will learn the dynamic role context plays in shaping leadership processes, stories of resistance, and effective social change. 


Students will complexify their understanding of good and bad leadership through studying specific leaders and their collaborators and attempt to analyze what they said and did in light of the places, people, history, and the cultural environment that shaped them and their relationships. 


Some leaders will be inspiring, some will serve as a warning, and almost all will be a mix between the two. We will draw on classic leadership texts, biographies, writings, and art to draw implications for our own lives, our communities and aspirations.

“Going to Prague was one of the best experiences of my life. It was an amazing way to immerse myself in a different culture and truly see how big the world is. Every aspect of the city is mesmerizing, from the delicious food to the beautiful buildings. There was never a dull moment while I was there!”
