Raise your university's profile

THE  summits and forums are global gatherings for outstanding thought leaders to learn, network, and share knowledge and experience. We bring together university and academic leaders with politicians and business chiefs to share best practice and innovation in the development of world-class universities.

Over the last five years, our events – headed by the flagship annual THE  World Academic Summit and encompassing a regular series of prestigious, regionally-focussed or bespoke thematic events – have been hosted by some of the world’s top universities and have brought together thought leaders from across five continents and more than 130 countries.

Our host partners enjoy unparalleled opportunities: to draw senior international decision-makers to their campuses to engage with their leadership teams and faculty; to convene high-profile public discussions on the most pressing issues facing global higher education; to forge new international relationships and partnerships through the summits’ rich networking activities; and to join an enduring alumni network.

“These summits are incredibly valuable. They bring people in to your institution who don’t know you so well, as well as old friends. They’re great opportunities for building alliances and profile.”
Ed Byrne, President and principal, Kings College London
