In 2019, Han Rakels published an article in TH&MA Magazine on the U4 Academic Leadership Programme: a high-profile leadership programme for top-level executives in the management of five European universities. Han is the facilitator of this programme, and has run a few succesful cycles since 2013.

In the article, he explains the background and context of this leadership programme, and its main methodologies and results. 

“It is unfortunate that the passion, intelligence, and experience of this leadership caliber are usually not given the space to arrive at more profound insights and innovative actions […] With the application of the right design principles and success factors, it is possible to create a meaningful learning trajectory that triggers substantial insights, actions and behavioral changes.”
