Event Details

International higher education: distinctiveness & branding

A Guardian Higher Education Network half-day seminar

Following the successful distinctiveness and branding in UK higher education event in June, the Guardian, Leadership Foundation and the UK HE International Unit invite you to attend a half-day seminar on branding and marketing for an international audience.

June's seminar focused on marking out your institution in a crowded domestic marketplace. This seminar will consider what makes a successful brand identity in the international market: what to avoid, what works well, and how to turn strengths at home into results overseas.

Keynote speakers from UK institutions will bring expert points of view and best practice on building a successful brand for an international audience. We also welcome a speaker from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, operating in the UK and other overseas markets to give a truly international perspective.

Seminar participants will leave the event having heard from specialist practitioners and advisers and discussed their ideas and strategies. There will also be ample opportunities to ask questions and network with peers during the session and over lunch.

Benefits of attending:

  • Understand key features of branding particular to international higher education
  • Explore what distinctiveness means in the international context
  • Gain insight into the relationship between international distinctiveness and market positioning
  • Network with specialist practitioners, advisers and peers

Who should attend?
