HEC Paris, one of the world’s leading providers of executive education, and Takatuf Oman, the leading Human Capital solutions provider in Oman, have successfully concluded the ‘Emerging Leaders Programme’ for business leaders drawn from a diverse group of Omani organizations.

The program leverages Takatuf’s Human Capital expertise and HEC Paris’ internationally recognized reputation in management programs with a view to offer a powerful learning experience to emerging leaders.

The five-month program successfully concluded for 19 of Oman’s key business. The hands-on approach to real-world experiential executive education helped participants gain new perspective through case studies, role play and ‘Action Learning Projects’ which are likely to create positive returns for the involved organization if implemented. The innovative learning curriculum uniquely designed by HEC Paris in Qatar in collaboration with Takatuf Oman helped develop the leadership competencies most sought-after by Oman’s largest organizations.

Dr. Nils Plambeck, Dean and CEO of HEC Paris in Qatar, and Academic Director of the ‘Emerging Leaders Programme’, said: “HEC Paris is one of the most renowned custom-designed program providers across the globe. ‘Emerging Leaders Programme’ builds on the sole premise of equipping Oman’s senior leaders to take the leap, and our world-class faculty has actually witnessed the transformational journey demonstrated by participants taking up this program. We are confident that this learning will eventually turn into a greater contribution towards their respective professional engagements and will thereby allow positive contributions to Oman's society.” 

Talking about the ever-growing need for such programs, Ibrahim Al Harthi, MD of Takatuf Oman, said, “It has indeed been an enriching journey for us to carry ahead such a successful association with HEC Paris in Qatar. Right from the first edition, we have been receiving accolades and garnering tremendous response from leading corporate houses in Oman and such credentials have only strengthened our partnership in steering the growth momentum. In close consultation with the leading companies of Oman, we have yet again delivered a programme where people can engage with global academic veterans towards honing leadership skills in taking the next leap forward.”

Structured across three modules, Strategy & Leadership; Business Simulation & Team & Performance Management; and Innovation & Future Leadership, the ‘Emerging Leaders Programme’ started in November 2018 and ended in April 2019. Takatuf and HEC Paris have been successfully collaborating since 2015.
