This intensive training course is part of the DIES programme (Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies) which is coordinated by DAAD and HRK and which aims at strengthening higher education management structures in developing countries.

The key objective of the course is to bring together a group of about 30 newly elected deans, vice-deans and heads of departments from universities in the Southeast Asian Region and to prepare them for the challenges of holding a dean’s position in a changing higher education landscape. Issues such as strategic faculty management, financial management, quality assurance and leadership will be key parts of this course. A soft skills workshop and exchange with German university leaders about higher education reforms will be included as well.
