Muscat, 30 October 2016 – Takatuf, the Human Capital solutions provider, and HEC Paris, one of the world’s top three providers of Executive Education programs, have partnered to offer the ‘Emerging Leaders Programme’, an Executive Education programme that takes into consideration Oman’s leadership context and leverages Takatuf’s Human Capital expertise and HEC Paris’ internationally recognised reputation in management programmes to offer a powerful learning opportunity to emerging leaders from the Sultanate’s diverse sectors.

Starting this week and over 3 modules, the ‘Emerging Leaders Programme’ will utilise a hands-on approach to real-world Executive Education. Through experiential exercises like case studies and role play, through team work and through HEC Paris’ ‘Action Learning Project’, emerging leaders will engage in an innovative experiential learning process that combines both theory and practice.

‘The “Emerging Leaders Programme” is a first-of-its-kind opportunity for participants to engage directly with a curriculum uniquely designed to develop the leadership competencies most sought by Oman’s largest organisations’, says Hilal Al Jadidi, Director of Consulting Services at Takatuf. ‘We know it’s unique because it’s the product of hundreds of hours of research and development between HEC Paris and Takatuf. We are very pleased to bring once again international expertise in executive education to the Omani market’.

Professor Nils Plambeck, Dean and CEO of HEC Paris In Qatar commented, ‘As an internationally recognised business school in Executive Education, HEC Paris is pleased to bring the “Emerging Leaders Programme” to the Sultanate of Oman in partnership with Takatuf. We specialise in custom designing training programmes in line with the needs and objectives of companies. For the “Emerging Leaders Programme”, we worked very closely with Takatuf to develop a curriculum for training the Sultanate’s leaders of tomorrow, which helps us contribute to the economy of Oman’.
