DEVELOPING LEADERS

Our team has been conducting training and development programs for university rectors and presidents, higher education senior administrators, and faculty for some time. More recently, we’ve also provided training for secondary school leaders such as principals, finance managers, and librarians.

AHEAD has a strong track record of developing and implementing these programs around the globe. We have engaged our faculty, alumni from the Executive Doctorate in Higher Education Management program, The Learning Alliance experts, and faculty from across the University of Pennsylvania to provide training and utilize leading experts and researchers in educational leadership, development, and governance.
