Our Classic Programs

OSB’s Classic Programs have been created for regional managers seeking to round out their leadership skill set and develop a strategic paradigm within which to tackle pressing high-level business issues. Participants represent diverse business functions, companies, industries and countries, mainly from the Middle East region.  OSB’s Classic programs offer a vertical orientation; that is to say, they aim at honing key management competencies at various decision-making levels of the organization.
