SS logo small

Applications for 2018 are now open!

Objectives
The School aims to develop the leadership potential of Senior HE Managers involved in major APAC and European strategic partnerships. During the programme, they will learn about:

  • the range of models and types of partnerships that exist (at programme or institutional level, branch campuses);
  • the governance and management approaches associated with strategic partnerships, including frameworks for assessing risk and ensuring quality;
  • the impact of global strategic partnerships on professional services in universities (e.g. HR, IT, Finance).

Themes
The programme is designed around the following key themes:

  • Global and other geopolitical changes in higher education
  • Decision-making processes
  • Institutional Brand management
  • Student engagement
  • Risk management (reputation, finances)
  • Quality assurance

Participants will gain experience in making informed choices during decision-making processes for large partnerships.

The Asia-Pacific School leverages the combined experience of EFMD and HUMANE, offering unique insight into generic issues and challenges as well as access to examples from a wide range of different national higher education systems across Europe and further afield.

Who can apply?
The School is a residential programme for fast track Middle to Senior-level Managers in higher education from across the APAC region and Europe.

Applicants are nominated by their own head of administration, their dean or equivalent in their organisation. They are selected by an EFMD- HUMANE panel with extensive experience of leadership management development programmes.

The deadline for applications is 15 June 2018.
