The National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School has launched the Asia Leaders in Financial Institutions (ALFI) programme for senior directors and managing directors in the financial sector. This programme will provide an opportunity for candidates to assume regional and global responsibilities.
The ALFI programme, that will welcome its first cohort in September 2015, will have a curriculum that will be train candidates to strengthen thought leadership, professional competencies and change management skills during the test of times. Training on technological and service innovations would also be part of this curriculum.
S Dhanabalan, Chairman, NUS Business School’s Managemet Advisory Board and Honorary Advisor to Temasek Holdings, stated “The financial sector is becoming increasingly complex, and competition forces institutions and management to stretch the boundaries of business innovation and ethical frameworks. Management leaders in the sector require deeper skills, expertise and a clear sense of what is good for the institution, economy and society. ALFI will certainly help establish future leaders who are able to navigate and build financial institutions that will be relevant in the years ahead.”
After joining NUS alumni network, participants will have lifetime access to the B-School’s executive education programmes. During this time, the candidates will get the chance to visit leading financial institutions in cities such as New York, Beijing and Mumbai to meet top officials and financial sector leaders, over an eight-month period.
