Global Executive Leaders Immersion - Singapore

How higher education institutions can strategically support civic development

The world is facing unprecedented challenges arising from climate change, ageing demographics, acceleration of technology and rising inequities. At the same time, the pace of change in the global higher education landscape is accelerating. Competition for international students is increasing across the world, as funding models recognise their value. Meanwhile lifelong learning strategies enacted at national levels are seeking to ensure that local populations are upskilled for incoming technologies, incentivising greater partnerships between higher education institutions and businesses. 

The Global Executive Leaders Immersion will look at how these challenges present opportunities for leaders in higher education, innovators and policymakers.

This new programme goes beyond the international immersion module from our Top Management Programme for Higher Education, providing a new bespoke international immersion programme delivered in Singapore for executive leaders from across the globe that will provide a different lens and set of experiences.

Participants will understand themselves differently as leaders, learning from the impact they make on shaping the peer group experience which they will co-create together in Singapore, exploring the key role in leadership of place in an area of the world seen as likely to be key in the evolution of higher education as we look ahead towards 2040
