Executive training upskills Vietnamese leaders
10 July 2017
The Institute for Business Research (IBR) has successfully completed its second executive education programme, 'Enhancing Leadership Capacity in Economic Management', held in late June.
The programme is designed to support the professional development of provincial leaders from Vietnam, with a strong focus on skills for enhanced leadership and economic decision-making.
It involved close engagement with the Vice-Chancellor Prof Neil Quigley, Professor of Economics Frank Scrimgeour, Professor of Finance Stuart Locke, and visits to government offices to engage with their leaders.
The participants also got to interact with a number of experienced New Zealand politicians, including former Prime Minister Sir James Bolger and Labour Party leader Andrew King, supported by experienced government officials well-versed in economic leadership.
Guest speakers from the community were invited to share their experience with participants and site visits arranged.
Two more groups of Vietnamese executives are expected to come to the University for the taining programme this October.
