The Nobel International Business School (NIBS), a leading business learning institution, is partnering Mannheim Business School (MBS), Germany, Swiss Business School (SBS) Zurich, to offer education to top executives of companies and political leaders in the country.
The programme is designed specifically to equip top executives with the necessary decision-making tool aimed at enabling them to transform their organizations.
Programs currently being run include Strategic Marketing in Action (SMA), Strategic Finance in Action (SFA), Sustainability Leadership in Action (SLA) and High Performance Boards in Action (HPBA), among others.
It is being led by Professor Kwaku Atuahene-Gima, an international scholar, who doubles as the President of NIBS.
Prof. Atuahene-Gima, commenting on the programme in a statement, observed that ‘the three elements of the leader’s challenge translate into the Know-Do-Believe (KDB) logic that underpins the design and delivery of our Executive Education in Action programmes.’
‘In each programme, participants discover real business problems, challenges and opportunities, and apply their knowledge to solve them by developing actionable plans and results. We also offer post-programme implementation support,’ he said.
Prof. Atuahene-Gima said the school’s model has significant advantages over traditional forms of executive education, stating that ‘it is an inside-out process that focuses on real business issues, brings in more buy-in, quicker and effective implementation because it taps into the knowledge and commitment of your executives.’
Explaining the rationale for setting up the Nobel International Business School in Ghana, the one-time Professor of Marketing & Innovation Management at the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), said the main task of a leader is to ensure that executives develop 21st century management skills while phasing out redundant or outdated skills.
