In September 2003 the ECIU launched the Leadership Development Programme. The main objective of the programme is to contribute to leadership development at the participating ECIU universities by providing a structured learning experience for a group of selected leaders/potential leaders.
The programme offers 20 participants drawn from the ECIU member universities a possibility to learn from their personal experience. The seminars are hosted every year by three different ECIU universities.
The main goal is to contribute to leadership development at the participating ECIU universities by providing a structured learning experience for a group of selected leaders and potential leaders. The programme provides participants with the opportunity:
“I was recommended to join the program by a colleague.
The program met my expectations in many ways. The program’s approach, where theory and practice of leadership was discussed both in general terms and from a academic perspective, meant that I got new insights to take with me in my own professional role. Through the ECIU LDP, I found new friends and colleagues that will increase both academic mobility and knowledge sharing between ECIU-members.”
"Our ECIU- leadership program had a strongly interactive and diverse group of colleagues from almost all ECIU- universities. The skilled yet eager-to-learn participants and the dedicated program leaders made for a great learning environment. The sessions provided the right balance between theory and tools for practice. I highly recommend this program to those interested in exploring how leadership in an academic context is different from other areas. The single best thing was the interaction with a very diverse group of individuals, exploring the art of modern management in academia. I made lasting friendships with some of my fellow classmates, and we have met several times since the program was finished. If they offer you the chance to join the program, do it."
“The ECIU leadership program is excellent and unique in the sense that it is tailored for people working in a high education environment, and it is not “just another leadership program”. It combines, on one hand, sessions focusing on leadership skills and situations where leadership plays a role (in high education), with, on the other hand, sessions on life in high education institutes and on the modernisation of the education agenda in a
EU context. “
