FCI Dean selected to attend DAAD International Dean's Course

Faculty of Creative Industries (FCI) Dean, Dr David Tneh Cheng Eng was recently selected to attend the DAAD International Dean’s Course Southeast Asia (DAAD-IDC) 2024/2025.

A total of 30 selected academics from Southeast Asia will be joining this training which is divided into three parts. Participants will be spending two weeks in Germany, one-week online training in their respective home countries and one week in Vietnam for the final leg of the training in 2025.

Jointly organised by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German Rector’s Conference (HRK), the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH), the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and the Centre for Higher Education (CHE), this training programme is part of the DIES programme (Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies), which is funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The key objective of the programme is the preparation and training of university management officials from Southeast Asia for the evolving higher education landscape of the 21st century. Acceptance to this highly competitive training programme hinges on the quality of proposals received, and Dr David Tneh’s proposal stood out among the numerous submissions to DAAD-IDC.

The programme also aspires to equip university management academics with training on quality assurance and leadership, strategic faculty management, financial management, higher education reforms and project management among others.

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is the world’s largest funding organisation for the international exchange of students and researchers. It contributes to development cooperation in numerous ways and with a broad range of scholarships, partnership programmes and advising services.

Further information on the scope and contents of the programme can be obtained on the DIES websites at www.daad.de/dies and https://www.international-deans-course.org.
