NIE Moving Forward : Towards 2017

The “NIE Moving Forward: Towards 2017” Strategic Roadmap charts the Institute’s broad strategic directions from 2014 to 2017. This roadmap is shaped like a ship to signify that “Education is a journey, not a destination.” It is upheld by three main pillars: (i) Knowledge Capital, (ii) Partnership, and (iii) Institutional Capacity Building and Corporate Professionalism. At the base of the ship lies a firm anchor encapsulating the core values of NIE. As NIE journeys forward, we will be firmly anchored in our core values, which will drive our corporate culture and help us to achieve our institutional goals.
