Cranfield Executive Development (CED), part of Cranfield University’s School of Management, has agreed a partnership with Mexeen, the Middle East Executive Education Network, to deliver a series of new, microlearning executive development programmes in the Middle East region.

Dr Yolande Herbath, Executive Client Director, CED, said: “Through our partnership with Mexeen, we believe we are bringing unique value to our clients in the Middle East, who will ultimately benefit from the strengths and offerings each organisation brings to the table. Partnering with Mexeen to deliver transformation to our clients will allow us to provide the very best leadership facilitation, management courses, consultancy and technology-based solutions to the region, preparing people and business for the decade ahead".

Ibrahim Badredeen, Mexeen Managing Director, said of the partnership: “With the growing uncertainty and the changes occurring in the education landscape in the Middle East region in particular, Mexeen is here to bring to the working professionals short and affordable online executive programmes offered by top global schools. Mexeen works with globally recognised schools to promote and offer relevant programmes that address the region’s opportunities and challenges. We believe that fast-paced learning with world-class content offered in an affordable manner will dictate the personal growth of executives.”

Using the Mexeen platform, delegates in the Middle East can access a tailored selection of Cranfield Executive Development’s world-class teaching to manage their development journeys. The partnership also aims to bring fresh, timely content to the region by designing new microlearning interventions, the first of which is the Managing Strategic Innovation programme which will be delivered online to empower Middle East executives to develop innovation strategies for their business.

Both Mexeen and Cranfield will continue to identify areas of development for Middle East executives, with at least another two programmes currently being designed.
