Entrepreneurial concept

It will offer the opportunity and platform to learn timeless skills/principles for managing and responding to change.


The program offers university managers the opportunity and platform to interact with influential policy makers, leading vice-chancellors and experts in the field of university education, and giving them the opportunity to learn timeless skills/principles for responding to current and potential future change thereby becoming institutional entrepreneurial leaders.


Such potential ‘entrepreneurial leaders’ not only benefit from this program as individuals but they also return to their institution with the innovative knowledge required to overcome and drive change within their institution.
