Meeting Expectations through Better Organisational Alignment

Friday | October 5 | 2012 | 5:30 pm - 7:00 PM

Admissions directors are tasked with recruiting best-in-class talent — regardless of the world economy, the school’s rank and reputation, and the available budget and resources. Programme directors are expected to deliver an exceptional academic and student experience — regardless of available faculty, budget, and resources, and despite the needs and characteristics of the class. Career service directors are supposed to attract well-known companies with the highest-paying jobs to campus and assure 100-percent placement within three months of graduation — regardless of class profiles and needs. This session will explore these three departments’ sometimes-clashing objectives and help you find ways to improve organisational alignment — and hence the way you deliver on student expectations.
