Cornell University in the US has launched an exclusive offer and invitation to women in executive leadership and women in leadership positions to enrol for its two-and-a-half-month online Executive Women and Women in Leadership certificate programmes.
To be delivered through Cornell University’s eCornell platform, the main thrust of this programme is to drive women's inclusivity across the African travel, tourism and hospitality value chain.
This is one of the key outcomes of the annual Africa Tourism Leadership Forum held in Botswana in 2022 and 2023, as well as a critical component of the Africa Tourism Innovation Hub initiative being pursued by Africa Tourism Partners and key stakeholders.
Ultimately, the programme aims to foster leadership and professional growth for women in executive and management positions. This special offer gives participants an almost 90% discount on the university’s standard programme fees due to a partnership forged between the university and Africa Tourism Partners.
The programmes are mainly for African women's professional and executive development in leadership and executive management positions.
