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.
In South Africa, the dynamic higher education sector touches everyone’s lives by delivering economic prosperity and promoting social cohesion.
There are many challenges facing our higher education institutions, but with challenges come opportunities.
Our Education Practice works with universities and research institutions to secure the academic and business leaders with the talent to foster world-class education and innovation in South Africa.
