Muscat, May 22, 2012
Bahwan CyberTek (BCT) Group, a global provider of software products, has entered into a partnership with Indian School of Business to provide executive education courses in the Middle East.
Under the agreement, the Centre for Executive Education (CEE) at ISB would deliver executive education courses in the Middle East, which will fulfill the strong need among corporate houses of the region for professional training programmes for their senior and middle management.
To start with, the programme will be delivered in Oman from September this year for 50 to 100 people in the first year. BCT plans to expand this to the UAE, Qatar, Egypt and other countries in the region.
ISB will focus on the design and delivery of the programmes, which will be conducted by ISB's globally renowned faculty. The CEE, which offers open and custom designed programmes, is also looking at creating case studies relevant to the region.
“In line with our corporate goal of being a leading player in the knowledge economy, we see tremendous synergy with the ISB in bringing world class education to the Middle East region that is keen to transform itself from just being an oil based economy,” said S Durgaprasad, director and CEO, BCT.
“With the signing of this MoU, we see the beginning of a new journey in this space.”
Ramanathan Hariharan, senior director, Centre for Executive Education, ISB said, “This is another step towards achieving our mission of bringing global best management practices to the emerging markets. Our collaboration with one of the most trusted business conglomerates in the region highlights our equal dedication in enhancing business potential as well as preparing a pipeline of future leaders in the Middle East.”
“We are confident that this association will generate tremendous opportunities for cross-collaboration between the two countries and contribute to the growth of business and industry in the Middle East,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
