Greetings – Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Great New Year ahead!
I write to thank you for an amazing 2020 in Tekedia Institute despite the unprecedented paralysis from coronavirus. We hit great milestones, training thousands of professionals from more than 30 countries. From India to Singapore, Nigeria to Brazil, Canada to the United States, and beyond, we served innovators and growth champions, providing them with capabilities to innovate, grow and advance firms, and the wealth of nations. In our vision to “discover and make scholars, noble, bright, and useful”, we impacted the career trajectories of many, and positively the course of many firms.
Tekedia Institute aspires to become the best management and leadership development institution in Africa. We now have more than 85 faculty members, from great companies like Shell, Microsoft, Flutterwave, Infoprive, Nigerian Breweries, MTN, King’s College, Coca Cola, Access Bank, African Export–Import Bank, and other category-kings. The testimonials have been superb, and firms have been transformed.
If you are joining or re-joining Tekedia Mini-MBA which begins Feb 8, 2021, our books – Africa’s Sankofa Innovation, and The Dangote System: Techniques for Building Conglomerates – should keep you busy. We are also unveiling a new book – “Innovation and Growth of Firms: A Guide for Innovators and Growth Champions” – in H1 2021.
The new book focuses on the elemental constructs of innovation and business growth, and how companies can create leverageable factors, and bring new basis of competition in markets, by efficiently combining and recombining factors of production. I have innovators and growth champions in big, medium, and small companies, in mind, for this book.
More so, from the feedback we received from members, we are adding Session Labs to practicalize some courses; the following will be delivered along with about 36 Live webinar sessions in edition 4. Full curriculum is here.
- Remote Work Administration: Krozu (Florida, USA)
- Blockchain, Cryptocurrency and Decentralized Finance: Bitfxt (Nigeria)
- Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics: Infoprive (Australia & Nigeria)
At the Institute, we are honoured for the opportunity to serve in this capacity. And as the dawn of 2021 arrives, I write to note that we have expanded our program, and deepened the quality. Register for Tekedia Mini-MBA here and Tekedia Advanced Diploma programs here. Tekedia Mini-MBA runs for 12 weeks; it is 100% online, and covers most courses in a typical management program. Those courses are taught by business leaders from great companies. It costs $140 or equivalent in local currency.
