SINGAPORE – As Asia grows, a looming shortage of senior leaders among the region’s financial institutions is expected.
The National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School has thus launched the Asia Leaders in Financial Institutions (ALFI) programme to equip industry practitioners with the capabilities to assume regional and global responsibilities, including Chief Executive Officer-level leadership and specialist roles.
The programme opens for applications and is designed for senior directors and managing directors in the financial sector.
Enrolling its first cohort in September 2015, the ALFI programme will feature a curriculum aimed at strengthening thought leadership, professional competencies, and change management skills for turbulent times, while providing rigorous training on transformational product, technological and service innovations.
This will be done through systematic mentoring by prominent financial leaders from around the world, who are members of the NUS Business School Global Network.
Upon graduation, participants will be able to join this network and have lifetime access to the School’s Executive Education (EE) programmes, activities, services, global CEO roundtables, and continue to enjoy systematic mentoring.
Participants will, over an eight-month period, visit leading financial institutions in cities such as New York, Beijing and Mumbai for meetings with top officials and financial sector leaders. They will also be required to complete capstone projects, and take part in global CEO roundtables.
