Context

Throughout Europe, and despite apparent differences between national systems, senior managers in higher education have to deal with very similar issues. The increasing impact of European legislation and initiatives such as the Bologna Declaration reinforce this common interest. The top managers of tomorrow will be those who understand the global environment and can capitalize on opportunities for development.

Aims

The EFMD (ESMU) - HUMANE Winter School develops the leadership potential of talented administrators by making them fully aware of the concepts and practices of strategic management in a European context, and the importance of integrating academic matters, finances, human resources, governance, leadership and communication strategy in the elaboration of university strategy.

Format

The program is highly intensive, including plenary sessions and practical work in small groups. Participants are encouraged to discuss the situation of their own institutions. The working language is English, but presenters are well used to dealing with various levels of language proficiency.

Subject matter

The Winter School focuses on leadership skills and the “big picture” of management (how to identify and implement necessary changes). However, the context of university life and the developing scene across Europe provide a unifying thread – this is not just “yet another” management course.

Participants thus gain experience in making informed choices in decision-making processes. ESMU's activities and expertise in European higher education policy have been integrated into the EFMD portfolio and EFMD is happy to collaborate with HUMANE on the organization of the Winter School. The Winter School uses the experience of EFMD and HUMANE members to give unique first-hand insight into general problems. The geographical and cultural spread of our members ensure that this discussion is not system-specific.

Applicants

The Winter School is designed for talented fast-rising managers of administration or services, some of who might become heads of administration. The typical candidate will be someone who has the potential to become an influential senior manager and/or head of administration in the future but who at this moment may not be a deputy or senior colleague. Candidates may be an expert or a specialist with the potential to broaden responsibility and move in due course to a senior management position. They are nominated by their own heads of administration, and selected by the School Steering Committee.

The Winter School is designed for talented managers of administration or services, some of whom might become heads of administration in the future.
Applicants must during application provide:

A one page statement describing your qualifications and why you are interested in this Winter School
A one (or maximum two) page curriculum vitae
A letter of support from your head of administration
