This year's World Innovation Summit on Education (WISE) focuses on "Reinventing Education for Life". WISE is an initiative of Qatar Foundation, and IIE has served as a partner organization to WISE since the launch of the initiative five years ago. This year's conference will feature IIE's president, Allan Goodman, in a special WISE/UNESCO plenary session on "Educational Challenges in a Changing World," which will be broadcast live, as well as a special session on higher education in Syria. 
Prior to the Summit, IIE helped deliver the fourth WISE Program for Education Leadership, an initiative that was launched at the inaugural WISE Summit in 2009 to enhance leadership skills and strengthen international networks for emerging university presidents and higher education leaders around the world. Nineteen new vice chancellors, rectors, and presidents from seventeen developing countries, identified as exemplary emerging higher education leaders, were selected to take part in a rigorous three-day training workshop. The countries represented at this year’s program were: Bangladesh, Brunei, China, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Iraq, Kenya, Lebanon, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Thailand, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
