An executive transition at a college or university provides an opportunity to embark on a succession course that can align and galvanize an institution’s vision. At a time of greater interest in considering leadership from outside the academy, Korn/Ferry has the ability to attract diverse traditional and non-traditional talent around the globe.
Leadership transitions also provide an opportunity to secure a fit of values, style and personality. Korn/Ferry is the only executive search firm offering a level of leadership assessment that speaks directly to the capacity of an executive to lead and perform effectively.
