Prof. Ulrich Hommel delivered a talk at Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO on “Managing and Leading Universities in Times of Disruption”. He outlined to the audience of around 100 rectors, vice rectors, deans and other university leaders how current market dynamics and technological developments will be reshaping higher education globally.

In an engaged discussion, participants explored the resulting management challenges and the leadership skills needed to help higher education institutions succeed in an environment increasingly characterized by VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity & ambiguity).

Prof. Hommel emphasized the role of organizational resilience as a key ingredient for converting current challenges into institutional progress and advantage.
