Barcelona Winter School
Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), 15-20 March, 2020
We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Winter School.
Universities seeking competitive advantage in the global higher education market can’t rely on national frameworks alone. The pace and nature of change may be different between national systems, but the imperative to adapt is the same for all institutions. Tomorrow’s top managers will be those who understand universities’ global context, have access to active international networks and have the skills to enable their institutions to seize opportunities for future success.
The key benefits of participating in the Winter School are:
Format and Content
Teamwork, peer learning and active engagement with a culturally diverse group of participants and speakers are the key themes amplified via the format and content of the Winter School.
The programme is both immersive and intensive, with participants grouped into teams. Each team does a deep dive on an institutional case study to demonstrate contrasting approaches to effecting successful international strategy and policy change. Teamwork sessions are balanced with plenary sessions conducted by expert speakers on a variety of topics relevant to the School’s themes. The working language is English, but presenters are skilled at dealing with various levels of English language proficiency.
The Winter School is designed for talented fast-rising managers of professional services, many of whom will be aspiring to senior institutional leadership. Managers of specialist areas who are seeking to broaden their experience, as well as general managers of academic operations in schools/faculties will all benefit from participation in the Winter School. All applicants must be nominated by their institutional head of administration/or equivalent. A HUMANE/EFMD Steering Committee makes a final decision on applications up to a maximum of 35 people.
Applicants must provide the following:
Institutions may also wish to explore travel funding opportunities from the EU for training activities, such as the the Erasmus + Programme.
Applications can be made until 15 November 2019.
The fee for the week-long programme will be €3,790 for HUMANE or EFMD members (plus VAT if applicable). It includes fees for tuition, all documentation and accommodation in a central Barcelona hotel but excludes travel costs.
