W100 Academy

High level training for Communications, Marketing, and International staff in global universities

W100 Academy

The World 100 Reputation Network Academy is an intensive practical reputation training programme. It was launched in September 2016 and was followed by a second in May 2017. Following on from the success of these two events, we are running a third academy in December 2017.

Aimed at professional communications, marketing, and international staff in international World 100 universities, with pre-director or first-director level experience, W100 Academies build practical and strategic skills that can be applied to support reputation, strengthen recruitment and deepen brand distinction.
