Published on

Acquire the knowledge and tools to draw up and successfully implement a strategic internationalisation plan at your institution. In this hands-on course you will learn about the different phases for the development of this strategic tool, who to involve in the process, how to see the plan implemented and how to monitor its advancement. It is often said that internationalisation needs to be embraced by each and every member of an institution for it to be successful. With this in mind, it is crucial to involve everyone in the strategic planning process. But how can it be done to ensure success? What are the pitfalls that need to be avoided? You will learn how to best advise your leaders and help your institution stand out in the international market by setting clear goals and objectives and identifying the actions needed to reach them. The course will take place at the EAIE Academy in The Hague from 7-9 April 2014 and will combine theory and case studies, individual and group exercises and will offer you a toolkit consisting of tips for what to do back at your institution.

This presentation is a sneak peek into the course. Check out more details about the course and sign up by 17 March 2014:!
