Customized Programs

OSB partners with companies on a one-to-one basis to create learning experiences that are tailored to the needs of each firm. Our programs emphasize the creation of a leadership toolkit which can be adapted to the specific circumstances of the partner company. As pioneers of business education in the Middle East, we specialize in understanding the regional context in which our corporate partners operate.  Our custom programs enable learning partnerships that have mutual value for leading regional companies and the OSB faculty.

OSB offers company-tailored and sector-tailored modules to suit your executive learning needs. By customizing our offerings to your executives, your executives become a corporate in-house consultancy team tasked with transforming your company into a learning organization. Offerings are tailored to reflect application specifics and nuances through case studies and management exercises in the following sectors:

  • Financial Services
  • Family Business
  • Oil and Gas
  • Manufacturing
  • Retailing
  • Real Estate

A long term relationship with OSB is powerful and far–reaching. In addition to the limitless access to a wealth of physical resources such as the Jafet library, which houses the largest and most extensive business information resources in the region, corporate partners can gain real-time exposure to the latest insights in global business scholarship and how they shape the practice of management in the region.  Corporate partners can also tap into the best and brightest OSB talent for recruitment and networking. On the other hand, OSB faculty members also benefit from these long term relationships by staying tuned in to the emerging regional issues that inform and enhance their research agendas as well as developing a repertoire of regional case studies that will feed back into the School’s programs.
