This program gave us new concepts for developing strategies in the organization. We were also learning about coaching, which is very important for the leaders....on how to handle difficult situations. There were many case studies we were looking into. It has been a wonderful opportunity for us to get a chance to learn at the international level and discuss among ourselves at the local level.
CEO, Mega Bank Nepal
The programme was a fruitful experience for strategic preparation and implementation. It also taught us how to lead the team effectively and capitalise on human strength. I would recommend mid-level to senior executive level people to participate in this programme.
CEO, Civil Bank
It was great to be a part of this programme for the last five days and a very well-conceived and an excellent programme with practical orientation. In the interest of development of local talents, I highly recommend more executives to participate in this programme. My executives would definitely be participating in the programme.
Managing Director (CEO), Nepal SBI Bank
I have attended many programs during my life time but this one is stand out one. This course has contributed immensely in unlearning and relearning, and updating my MBA degree (now expired), which I acquired more than 30 years ago. We need many more courses like this for all levels to improve leadership, management and business standards across all sectors in the country. I am pretty confident that Rice University - LAN partnership will deliver to our expectation, without any need to send our people abroad for expensive courses.
