IMD and Huawei, a leading telecom provider based in China, recently delivered an open enrolment executive education program to help telecommunications executives from around the world lead their organizations through digital transformation.

IMD Professors Tawfik Jelassi and George Kohlrieser led three days of sessions while Huawei executives led the remainder of the weeklong program.

Participants ranged from CEOs to Chief Technology and HR officers, and hailed from countries such as Kazakhstan, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, China, Mongolia and others.

β€œThe collaboration between Huawei and IMD is phenomenal,” said a participant from Saudi Arabia STC.

β€œThe program provided us insights across different industries. We are now much clearer about the way forward and how to achieve our targets,” said a participant from Mongolia Unitel LLC.

We were exposed to insights on leadership and how to prepare our companies to face digital transformation. It was eye-opening to be exposed to learnings also from outside our industry,” said a participant from South Afrika Telekom.

The week was creative and full of insights on leadership. It was extremely beneficial to exchange with peers from the telecom industry. It was a stepping stone for our company to become more competitive,” said a participant from Indonesia Telkomsel.

IMD provides both open enrolment and custom programs for individuals, teams and organizations.
