The ‘Lagos block’ of the International Executive Development Programme commenced today Monday, August 8, 2016. The five-day programme which is in partnership with Duke Corporate Education is being facilitated for the Banking Sector Education and Training Authority (BANKSETA), South Africa.
The IEDP consists of three study blocks with partners in South Africa (DUKE CE); Nigeria (Lagos Business School) and the United States of America (New York University). This Lagos study block is the second as the South African study block took place earlier this year, while the third study block will be happening later this year with New York University (NYU).
The programme which is designed as an action based learning intervention, promises to equip senior managers from leading South African investment banks with knowledge that will subsequently expose them to the best practices in the investment banking sector in South Africa and on a global scale.
BANKSETA is an enabler of skills development and transformation in the broader banking & microfinance sector and supports people development through partnerships, skills development, alleviating unemployment, creating a brighter future and enabling change in South Africa while Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE) is a global provider of non-degree custom executive education and other learning and development services.
