Although technological innovations have been pivotal in influencing the consumption of banking products and services, financial inclusion across the world continues to be a major concern. Over 2 billion working-age adults globally do not use formal financial services, a factor inhibiting their accessibility to financial crediting facilities.
Realizing the potential and ascertaining sustainable growth for the banking industry, can only be achieved by Banks that have the objective of widening the financial inclusion scope. Strathmore Business School in collaboration with World Bank (through Consultative Group to Assist the Poor – CGAP) has, through the Leadership in Financial Inclusion Programme, provided participants with the opportunity to learn best practices in leadership whilst building their management skills.
The programme, within a five-week time frame, is being offered through a blended mode where 3 Modules will be covered in 3 weeks shall be accessed through an online learning portal, whereas the 2 weeks of the program shall be delivered through face to face classroom interaction as guided by SBS facilitators. The face to face classroom interactions will be offered across four Eastern African countries; Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda.
This model allows participants the convenience of a conducive and experiential learning with a rich mix of both classroom interaction and virtual learning. Through this model, participants enjoy the greater responsibility and control of their learning experience.
