The programme aims at developing the executive leadership talents and competencies as well as enriching technical knowledge for the senior executives from the African banking and financial sectors by raising the efficiency of human cadres working in these sectors.
The programme was conducted during the period from 23 October to 27 October 2022 in Cairo with the participation of a number of senior executives from four banks in Tanzania and Zambia.
During the programme, the latest trends and developments in various topics were discussed and presented such as strategy; sustainability; corporate governance; agility; disruptive innovation; dealing with the media, and banking digital transformation.
The in-class training programme has been designed to include different training methodologies based on case studies, simulation games, and role-playing activities.
In this context, Abdel Aziz Nossier, the executive director of the Egyptian Banking Institute (EBI), said: “The African continent is an important pillar in our strategy, therefore we continually develop co-operation opportunities and implement training programmes that invest in the human capital within the African financial and banking sectors.”
Nossier expressed his happiness with the participation of several senior executives from various African banks in the first round of the programme, adding that several rounds of programme are planned to be conducted in the future.
He added: "The EBI executive programme targeting senior executives in the African banking sector comes as a continuation of EBI's efforts over the past years to intensify its activities in the African continent with the aim of supporting the development of human capital, where EBI has provided its training services for more than 4,000 trainees from 44 African countries until now.”
It is worth mentioning that EBI is constantly working on developing and increasing the diversity of its programmes offered to the African banking sector, whether by receiving trainees at EBI's headquarters or through interactive distance learning programmes.
