Event Details

Programme objectives
The Winter School develops the leadership capability of senior managers on the core theme of internationalisation and explores the implications for professional services across faculties, schools and the central administration of the university.

Programme pillars

  • Thematic sessions on internationalisation trends, impact assessment, strategy, governance and management
  • Practising strategy appraisal and formulation
  • Exercising leadership skills around case and teamwork

Programme themes

  • Global sector trends and the implications of globalisation for institutions of higher education
  • Governance, leadership and management models in higher education
    • Talent management
    • Financial Management
    • Strategic and Change Management
    • Human Resource Management
  • Communication Strategy
  • Globalisation

Programme delivery
The five components are delivered through strategic conversations with highly experienced leaders and managers in higher education, practical casework and highly interactive team- building sessions.

Throughout the week, participants will work with peers from other institutions on the internationalisation strategy of two case universities, appraising their strategy and offering alternative directions.

Who can apply?
The Winter School is designed for talented fast-rising managers of administration or services. The typical candidate, possibly an expert or a specialist, may not currently be a deputy or in a senior role, but will have the potential to become an influential senior manager or head of administration. 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.
