USB-ED and Global Natives entered into a full collaborative partnership to deliver comprehensive executive education programmes in Mauritius.
As an MQA registered Training Institute, Global Natives believes in working together with companies to achieve their learning and development agendas. To do this they work with credible learning and development partners who understand the challenges and complexities of organisations. In collaboration with USB-ED they support the development agenda of business partners by co-creating impactful learning solutions. Global Natives is also committed to providing targeted consultancy and research.
The partnership between USB-ED and Global Natives opens opportunities to build relationships with faculty who are setting trends and working across Africa. It is Global Natives’ goal to support USB-ED in developing corridors between Mauritius and other African countries. The aim is to see more businesses in Mauritius benefiting from the comprehensive suite of learning and development opportunities offered by USB-ED.
In 2015, USB-ED and Global Natives collaborated to present a first Master Class, as well as a Management Development Programme (MDP), for one of the leading companies in Mauritius. Subsequently, several master classes, workshops and MDPs have been presented in various business sectors in the country. Many of these programmes have been tailor-made for Global Natives’ client base. In addition, executive coaching is offered to clients who want further mileage out of their training. Breakfast meetings, complimentary seminars, and facilitated Think Tank Discussion Groups play a significant role in the development agenda of Mauritius.
