Commenting on the Program, Mohammed Alardhi, Investcorp’s Executive Chairman, said: “Investcorp has always been committed to youth empowerment. This year’s edition of the Investcorp Leadership Program was very constructive as we sought to prime future young leaders to become successful decision makers by providing them with a platform to sharpen and develop their knowledge, skills and talents. I was particularly impressed by the increasing gender diversity in this year’s program. Through the partnerships we build with prestigious institutions, such as IMD Business School, we ensure that our participants are getting the best value and knowledge from renowned experts and scholars.”
