Now in its fifth year, The Entrepreneurial University Leaders Programme has established a strong reputation as a leading development initiative for senior university personnel wishing to innovate and make change happen. The programme is designed and administered through a partnership between NCEE and Universities UK.
Starting on the 20th January, the University of Oxford hosted the first module for the 2015 Entrepreneurial University Leaders Programme, working together with Oxford Brookes University. Thirty senior university leaders are taking part in the programme, focusing on the urgent need for entrepreneurship and innovation in universities.
The module which ran over a period of four days was a big success and included discussions with Sir Drummond Bone, Master of Balliol College, Oxford; Allan Gibb, Emeritus Professor, University of Durham; Buck Goldstein, Entrepreneur in Residence, University of North Carolina; Nick Hillman, Director of the Higher Education Policy Institute and Graham Henderson, Vice Chancellor, Teesside University and also involved experience sharing with faculty, experts and student representatives from a range of UK institutions.
The second module will be taking place from the 21st – 24th April at the University of Strathclyde, THE Entrepreneurial University of the Year, 2013.
