Event Details

Overview
The focus of the Strategic Leadership Programme for Deans is to discuss central themes that any dean and director faces in one or another form, and with priorities that may vary between business schools and over time. Hesburgh (1999: 59) noted:

“To be great, an academic institution needs a great faculty, a great student body, and great facilities. In order to have all these things, it needs substantial endowment, which means you have to learn how to raise money – lots of it. And finally, a great university needs to be imbued with a great spirit, which is an inspirational and cohesive kind of ambience, and not just a lot of separate parts that operate around a central heating plant.”

Please note that the programme will be limited to 20 participants.

Target group
Newly appointed Deans or Director General of the entire institution with overall school management responsibility.
