Leadership skills for top management


The Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Karachi, and the Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad, Tuesday, announced the commencement of their first joint executive education programme in Pakistan. An IBA Karachi statement issued here said that the programme titled `Leadership Skills for Top Management’ is currently underway in Karachi.
It said that this initiative is an outcome of the MoU signed between IBA Karachi and ISB on April 13, 2012, aimed at bringing world-class executive education programmes to Pakistan.
`Leadership Skills for Top Management’ (LSTM) is the first among the planned series of programmes aimed at the business leaders in Pakistan. It has been specially designed to help CXOs, business heads and government officials to hone their leadership skills and drive growth through exceptional performance in a challenging and ever-evolving global market.
LSTM, the statement added, is among ISB’s most successful executive education programmes in India, having been delivered to more than 1,000 senior leaders in the last 11 years. Commenting on the programme, Dr. Ishrat Husain, Dean and
Director, IBA said `Pakistan can benefit immensely from its proximity to India which has established world class institutions of higher learning.
The collaboration with the Indian School of Business ISB- a magnet for attracting top faculty from advanced countries – will expose the Pakistani corporate managers to leading scholars and practitioners from the world and help in acquiring new knowledge and tools. Hopefully, this exposure will equip them to play a critical leadership role in the future. We look forward to many such joint ventures in the coming years’.
Announcing the programme, Deepak Chandra, Deputy Dean, ISB, said `We are delighted to announce the commencement of our first executive education programme in Pakistan in association with IBA. As Asia rises into global economic prominence, it is critical that countries in the region and the business leaders seize the opportunity. We are confident that the ISB’s strong international linkages and understanding of emerging economies will help in grooming high-performing business leaders and policy makers from Pakistan and equip them with global best practices that will enable them to lead the country in its next phase of growth’.
