  2. 2.     DON’T MISS IT! Dear Esteemed Educators, The Asian Higher Education sector is entering a time of great change. With the recent cuts to government funding and changes in policy, universities must develop strategic and effective means of becoming more autonomous, self-sufficient and competitive. With a revolution in higher education funding, the rise of alternative education methods such as online learning and the increasingly competitive private education world, significant disruption is widely anticipated for the higher education sector in Asia! The old mentality of solely relying on tuition revenue also has to change. Income diversification must be planned for, and new streams of revenue must be established to sustain tertiary institutions and enable them to retain enrolments and support excellence in research and learning outcomes. This sets the unique theme for the 2017 discussion. I am delighted to bring you the 2nd Annual Higher Education Leaders Asia Forum, focusing on strategic business models, partnerships, growth strategies and best practices to bridge the gap between excellent quality and the required enrolment necessary for long term success. I invite you to explore our program, case studies and meet up with our top speakers. We hope you will join us in this unique opportunity to share, engage and brainstorm with your colleagues. I look forward to seeing you in February 2017. Best Regards, Bella Lai Program Director 2nd Annual Higher Education Leaders Asia WHAT 2016 DELEGATES LIKED ABOUT THE CONFERENCE: HIGHLIGHTED CASE STUDIES “Get to know and be exposed to thoughts of visionary leaders from Asia with more brilliant thoughts presented on how to solve and bring good towards our work in university setting” — Director of Finance, Universitas Pelita Harapan “It is a one stop comprehensive session that puts together ideas and suggestions from many universities from across the continent.
