DIES University Leadership and Management Training Programme 2019 (UNILEAD 2019)

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Department of Continuing Education and Education Management (we.b) at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg in Germany are jointly organising the DIES University Leadership and Management Training Programme UNILEAD in Oldenburg, enabling young management-level professionals at higher education institutions in developing countries to tackle successfully every-day challenges. In order to do so, the programme brings together the topics Project Management, Financing and Investment and Human Resource Management with individual and practice-oriented change projects of each participant.

Developed in 2008, UNILEAD is part of the DIES programme (Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies), which has been jointly coordinated by the DAAD and HRK (German Rectors' Conference) since 2001.

Further information on the DAAD DIES Programme and the International Deans' Course can be found at

Programme Contents and Methodology

UNILEAD focuses on three key areas:

  1. Project Management (PM). This includes courses on Strategic Management in Projects, Methodology of Project Management and Risk Management.
  2. Financing and Investment (F&I). This includes general financing strategies, operating with financial plans, control of solvency as well as the knowledge and use of investment tools and concepts.
  3. Human Resource Management (HRM). This includes courses on Instruments of Human Resource Development, Leadership, Conflict Management and Communication.

In order to complement these three modules, additional topics, such as Team Competences, Quality Management, and Leadership, are touched upon.

At the heart of the entire programme is an individual and
practice-oriented change project that participants are required to propose already in their application. Course content will always reflect on and relate to these change projects.

The methodology will be strictly project oriented and is based on case studies or questions derived from the particular job situation of the participants. Thus, it is expected to bring in personal experience and to share this knowledge with the group of around 25 participants from different regions of the world.
High personal motivation, the willingness to get actively involved during the online and contact phases and excellent English language skills are essential for the successful completion of this course.
