The aim of the Winter School is to develop the leadership potential of talented administrators in higher education by making them fully aware of the concepts and practices of strategic management in a global context.
The programme focuses on key areas of higher education management including: strategic management, effective implementation involving integration of academic and financial issues, human resources, communication and change management.
The typical candidate will be someone who has the potential to become an influential senior manager and/or head of administration in the future but who at this moment may not be a deputy or senior colleague. Candidates may be an expert or specialist with the potential to broaden responsibility and move in due course to a senior management position.
In addition to presentations and case studies on particular themes from leading university administrators and distinguished speakers, participants work in teams on a university based case study, that involves analysing data, finding policy options, and finishes with a case presentation to a panel of EFMD and HUMANE members.
Participants are requested to fill in the electronic application form and will be asked to submit the a one page statement describing qualifications and interest, a curriculum vitae and support letter. The deadline for applications is 31 October 2015.
EFMD and HUMANE are pleased to announce the availability of two scholarships for outstanding individuals from EFMD and HUMANE member institutions. If you wish to apply for this scholarship, please check the details here.
