EY launches new training courses across MENA to help businesses improve performance
Dubai, 15 March 2013: EY has launched new training courses which provide business communities across MENA with a one-stop-shop for their training needs. The initiative aims to help businesses improve their performance, reshape their business and sustain their future through a wide range of courses that optimize team skills, and create awareness around new or changing trends in specific industries. All of the courses are run and delivered by the EY MENA Training Center which serves as the training hub in the MENA region and are centralized on the recently launched website (www.eytrainingcenter.com).
Nadeem Shafi, MENA Leader, Financial Accounting Advisory Services, EY, said: “In today’s testing business environment, high-quality training is a crucial element of innovative talent management, to improve performance and ensure that businesses can respond to challenges. As organizations are looking to identify and implement employee cost reduction initiatives, they also need to find ways of retaining and developing their top talent.”
The three types of training courses offered are general open-house training, sector-based training and customized/tailored business-specific training solutions. The open-house training includes technical and management development content such as courses on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), finance and accounting related courses, professional qualifications (e.g., CPA, ACCA, AAT, FIA, CIMA, CMA, APRM, PRM, CIA and PMP etc.), specialist courses on business process improvement, business valuations, financial and business modelling, risk management, anti-money laundering, competency-based human resources and people development courses as well as many others. The sector-based training helps businesses to identify the specific new skills and experience needed for their industry.
“The courses are tailor made to the specific needs of each business. Every company has its own priorities, driven by the industry in which it operates, its competitive situation, the products and services it offers, its go-to-market strategies, and the culture of its management and organization,” said Nadeem.
The courses are delivered and conducted by skilled trainers through a range of approaches to suit different learning methods and to cater to busy professionals. These include eLearning enabled classroom sessions, remote learning sessions for individuals, webinars and seminars/group sessions with case studies and discussion topics.
