The Shanghai Transnational Partnerships School - 17-22 November, 2019

17-22 November 2019
Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China

HUMANE and our strategic partner EFMD, are pleased to announce that registrations are now open for the Shanghai Transnational Partnerships School. Developed in collaboration with one of China’s most prestigious and internationally active universities, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, our School provides senior and middle managers with a unique international learning experience. Participants will gain insight into the spectrum of strategic partnerships operating in some of China’s most internationally focussed universities in Shanghai and nearby to China's most international metropolis.

The programme provides an opportunity to visit and discuss strategies with senior leaders of international partnerships in institutions such as Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Fudan University, Tongji University, South Eastern University and the University of Nottingham Ningbo China.

You will learn about the genesis of these institutions’ approaches to international partnership, key strategic partnerships currently in place, the big challenges they face in making the most of investments in these partnerships, as well as the future opportunities they want to exploit in pursuing the next stage of their academic strategy. You will also be exposed to other senior experts from outside higher education with deep experience of joint ventures with Chinese organisations.

The programme will be intensive to make the best use of limited time, but it will also be conducted informally with an emphasis on discussion and engagement with institutional hosts, as well as peer learning among a multi-national participant audience. Directors of operations/administration/finance; Directors of International Offices, External Relations, Institutional Planning & Strategy, Strategic Partnerships or comparable roles, as well as managers with responsibility for delivering joint venture projects will all benefit from attending this programme.

We anticipate that the programme will be extremely popular so register here to secure a place. You can also download the School brochure here.
