The higher education landscape is shifting across the world, and the next generation of university leaders require a unique set of skills to negotiate this change.
The traditional university model is being challenged by increasing student migration, disruptive technologies, and an increasingly competitive market-driven economy. The higher education sector has become truly global, with Academics moving internationally to enhance their careers.
Today’s university leaders must be able to create and demonstrate fiscal as well as academic value for stakeholders. An increasing focus on international collaboration and industry partnerships requires higher education leaders to be commercially savvy and politically agile.
The responsibility of the German Länder for education policy has created a wide array of educational concepts and learning pathways in Germany, resulting in an increase in private educational institutions, even as the public education sector continues to undergo upheaval.
