19 October 2017

Speaking on the topic of ‘Breaking the mould: anticipating the future of global education’, EUA Secretary General Lesley Wilson gave the keynote address at the 52nd Annual Assembly of CLADEA (Consejo Latinoamericano de Escuela de Administración), the Latin American Council of Management Schools, which took place on 17-19 October at California State University, San Bernardino.

The Secretary General reflected on how the wealth of European experiences with inter-university collaboration and internationalisation over the past 30 years could help to envisage and develop new models and opportunities for North and Latin American inter-institutional cooperation on the one hand, and collaboration with European universities on the other hand. “One way of addressing the uncertainty of globalisation is for universities to further develop partnerships that enable them to internationalise their programmes, enhance their research capacity and strive to help students to become truly global citizens.” She also stressed that “cooperation and integration processes must always be founded on shared purposes and common values”.

CLADEA is an international organisation that brings together higher education institutions and international organisations dedicated to teaching and research in the field of management.
