Dubai, UAE; March 05, 2012:
Etisalat Academy (ETAC), the largest single-source provider of Training & Development solutions in the Middle East, is glad to partner with IE Business School, one of the world’s top business schools. The aim of this partnership is to offer our clients an elite suite of specialized training options ranging from Top Management Programs to Executive Education Programs.
ETAC General Manager, David Brennan said, “Last year, the Academy outlined a roadmap for moving products and services to meet the emerging challenges across the Group. This means supplementing the existing catalogue with courses and programs that are far more strategic and linked to the key objectives for 2015. This tie-up is another step in that process.”
He added “IE Business School has extensive telecoms knowledge and experience from over a decade of working with Telefonica, Orange and others. Globally, they are rated in the top ten business schools and some programs are top five. We want this experience and commitment to excellence to be available to Etisalat Group and Operating Companies through a range of executive development, strategic masterclassses and longitudinal leadership programs that adopt the latest thinking.”
IE Business School has particular knowledge and skills in the telecommunications field. They are an integral strategic partner in Telefonica’s global development program, which also gives them desired experience in developing managers and executives from developing markets (not just telecoms). They have also partnered with Orange and others to develop top management and leadership skills.
IE Business School, with its central Madrid campus, boasts students from more than 90 countries on its Master, Doctorate and Executive Education programs. IE's unique approach to business education, powered by its focus on the entrepreneurial spirit, and coupled with its dedication to the business world at large have turned IE into an international center of education.
IE Business School was created in 1973 as a private initiative designed to offer postgraduate training programmes in the field of business administration and senior management. Since then, IE Business School has grown into a globally recognized and valued education institution.
IE Business School has the coveted Triple Crown comprising accreditation by EQUIS (European Quality Improvement Systems), AMBA (Association of MBAs) and AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).
ETAC is proud of its endeavour to provide business leaders with the knowledge and skills to enhance their capabilities and learn the latest management practices.
