The IAU Executive Leadership Programme (ELP) is unique. It is radically global in its ambition to support university leaders across all higher education systems focusing on common issues and challenges. It covers central aspects of higher education management and empowers university leaders to navigate the contextual and political dimensions of university leadership. In short, the ELP provides a framework with which to confront the big managerial, ethical, economic and societal questions universities are facing or will face. The year-long programme will cover 10 modules across HE Management and Transformative and Values-based Leadership.
