As internationalisation is increasingly integrated into institutional strategies, it is becoming essential for universities to develop the ability to define their rationales and approaches in the international effort, to assess performance according to different strategic objectives, and to understand how they compare to their competitors. If you are directly involved in the internationalisation process of your institution and are keen to discover the practices of benchmarking and its application to internationalisation, this is the ideal training for you. The course will take place at the EAIE Academy in The Hague from 10-11 April 2014 and will offer you new practical tools to boost your institutional performance and measure the success of your international strategy. You will understand how to use collaborative benchmarking as a tool for the assessment, enhancement and advancement of internationalisation and will learn how to develop an effective action plan.

This presentation is a sneak peek into the course. Check out more details about the course http://bit.ly/1feMnmr and sign up by 17 March 2014: http://bit.ly/1kvaMpk!
