Leadership Programme for Presidents, Vice-Presidents and Deans The Vice-President's Board (Research & Faculty) invites all new Deans to an afternoon exchange and information session that introduces the role as a Dean This in-house course offers insights and information about duties and responsiblities, the job profile as well as the differenciation of competencies of the schools and the president's board and their demarcation. A key aspect of this half day workshop is the sharing of experiences between new and former deans. The president as well as the representatives of the vice presidents boards will be part of this exchange. The afternoon will be rounded off with a joint dinner. Attendance by invitation only. In order to make your start into the post as smooth as possible, a dean's manual will be available on the HSG intranet from Fall 2021. We are currently working on an interdisciplinary course program for Deans and Professors with specific leadership responsiblities focussing on the Swiss university landascape. The program is scheduled to be launched in spring 2022.
