A paradigm shift is occurring in higher education with new methods, models and missions of learning emerging. The THE Asia Universities Summit 2022 will explore how universities can remain vital to a Covid-disrupted society and serve the needs of a rapidly changing world.
Asia, the world’s largest and most populous continent, also faces a demographic crisis. In many countries, population decline is disrupting the talent pipeline that will resource future knowledge and industrial growth. Universities need to adapt and provide learning opportunities that will upskill the people in the societies that they serve. Otherwise, how can we solve tomorrow’s future challenges without the human resource to do so?
The summit will feature the exclusive live reveal of the THE Asia University Rankings 2022, accompanied by a data masterclass to explore the latest data and identify the best-performing institutions.
The summit will also feature the THE Awards Asia 2022 ceremony. Now in their fourth year, the awards offer a major international platform to recognise outstanding leadership and institutional performance, and to celebrate the continent's higher education excellence in all of its diversity.
