Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are increasingly regarded as key players in addressing substantial socio-economic asymmetries and fostering sustainable competitive. Yet at the same time, in the past two decades, there has been little or no focus by governments and international donors on the capacity of universities to contribute to social change. Against this background, the Association of Commonwealth Universities (2010) has recommended that future development goals, at national and international levels, explicitly recognize the role of HE. However, to perform these roles successfully and transform themselves into major societal actors, universities need not only changes in missions and curricula but also building strong responsive leadership and management capacities (UNESCO, 1998).This is premised on the consensus that institutional management of African universities is weak, inefficient and necessitates rebuilding and professionalizing.
The program will attract current and potential leaders and managers in HEIs, policy and regulatory bodies. Specifically, the following categories will be targeted: Academic Staff, Heads of Department, Deans, Principals, Directors, Vice Chancellors and their Deputies and those in the administrative units of Universities, Tertiary and Polytechnic colleges, Ministry Education and National Council for Higher Education Officials.
