With the proliferation of international league tables in the past few years, more systematic ways of identifying and classifying world-class universities have appeared.
This masterclass is designed to explore what it takes to be a world-class university, and the necessary steps in achieving this vision.
The masterclass will provide an interactive learning platform for institutional leaders and policy makers from East Asian nations interested in developing a vision and strategy for the transformation of their universities and sharing with peers lessons of experience.
Attend and learn how to:
+Analyze what it takes to establish world-class universities: drivers and accelerating factors
+Explore how to use rankings and benchmarking to measure the performance of universities
+Recognize the dynamics of change and identify transformation strategies
+All participants will leave the masterclass with new ideas about how to design and implement transformation strategies to raise the performance of their universities in research and teaching.
