Both proven and promising Qatar leaders in the public, private and government sectors still have the chance to apply for enrolment into one of Qatar Leadership Centre’s (QLC) National Leadership Programmes 2020-2021, providing an opportunity to develop their leadership abilities that will aid Qatar’s rapid development.
Online applications for the National Leadership Programmes – Rising Leaders, Executive Leaders and Government Leaders – are open until September 22, QLC has said in a statement.
Enrolment into these programmes is determined through a stringent evaluation process extending from this month until early-2020, and candidates will be assessed based on their work experience and academic background.
The admissions criteria are unique to each National Leadership Programme, as they provide custom coursework that is aimed at bolstering specialist knowledge in various fields.
Upon admission, successful candidates who meet the rigorous standards for admission will benefit from the centre’s curricula and the combined knowledge of their prestigious international academic partners, the statement notes.
“Qatar Leadership Centre seeks to realise the full potential of Qatari leadership across all tiers of seniority and industrial sectors. We strive to strengthen the country’s national workforce through the development of their professional skills, allowing them to fulfil their personal goals while ensuring that their respective organisations prosper,” said Sheikh Dr Abdulla bin Ali al-Thani, board member and managing director of QLC.“As per His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani’s vision, we have become a hub and a national platform of leadership development, helping the country realise the human development goals prescribed in Qatar National Vision 2030.
“We are more committed than ever to training present and future Qatari leaders, ensuring that the country sustains its rapid development for the foreseeable future.”
The National Leadership Programmes were designed and developed in conjunction with esteemed educational institutions, including University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, HEC Paris, Harvard University, Georgetown University, Duke University, University of Chicago, Civil Service College Singapore as well as International Advisory Group, Profiles International and Al Jazeera Media Institute.
The programmes feature comprehensive coursework, including modules on strategic corporate policymaking, crisis leadership, financial management, negotiation and persuasion skills as well as communication, branding and positioning in competitive markets, the statement notes.
Notably, programme participants’ education extends beyond the classroom as QLC regularly schedules exclusive meetings with influential leaders in Qatar, the region and throughout the world, allowing them to learn from experiences shaped in the highest-level boardrooms and offices in the public, private and government sectors.
The programmes also incorporate their own annual week-long Learning Journey, as participants travel to meet leading executives and experts in important markets, such as Sweden, Japan, Singapore, the US and others, to observe and absorb insights developed by leading figures spearheading innovation at the government and corporate level.
Due to the in-depth nature of these programmes, participants are required to dedicate three to five days a month throughout the academic year.
QLC boasts of an alumni community of more than 600 business and government leaders, who continue to guide and shape the country’s development informed by the specialist knowledge they have obtained through the National Leadership Programmes.
