Leading Concepts, a provider of executive education programmes, has increased the number of courses in its 2002-3 calendar to sixteen from ten last year. A highlight of the calendar is Stanford Business School’s first ever Strategies for Effective Decision Making course, which has been localised for the region based on feedback from Leading Concepts’ customers.

“We are proud to play host on such a prestigious occasion,” said Aman Merchant, CEO, Leading Concepts. “Stanford Business School has tailored the programme especially for the region and it is clear that the learning environment in Dubai is clearly suited to it. It is also a reflection on just how important executive education has become in the region, which is illustrated by the fact that we have extended our calendar programme.”

Merchant says that 500 executives from around 250 companies as far away as Russia have attended Leading Concepts programmes so far. Regular clients include ADNOC, ABM Amro, NBK and Savola.

Leading Concepts provides the programmes in partnership with University of Michigan Business School, Stanford Graduate School of Business and Columbia Business School. The two to three day courses are structured to be as interactive as possible and aim to emphasise case studies over academic theory.

The sixteen programmes on the calendar take place between this October and June 2003. Areas covered in the programmes will include leading and managing people, advanced negotiation and dealmaking strategies, management of managers, strategic marketing and financial skills for management.
