From serendipity to strategic: how to build a distinctive university partnership

  • Level: advanced
  • Related Expert Communities Strategy and Management

Everyone wants to develop strategic partnerships, but why? Maybe ‘why’ is really a question that masks the challenges of inter-institutional trust. This session will focus on a partnership that exemplifies where a deep institutional relationship has developed breadth as well as depth in an atypical manner between two universities, building on the strengths of both. We will explore the steps taken to grow this partnership, while also engaging the audience to help shape the conversation.
