On Wednesday, 23rd March 2022, Strathmore University Business School graduated six members of the Multichoice Tanzania senior management team in the Senior Management Leadership Programme.

This was a Custom Programme designed for the Multichoice Tanzania senior management team that  aimed to enhance their leadership skills while integrating key management concepts and best practices to develop strategic thinking. Further, the Programme prepared them as senior executives to assume responsibilities at the highest level as they lead their companies and institutions to achieve a sustainable competitive edge. The two-year learning journey, coupled with challenges from virtual learning to the start-stop situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, among others, culminated in a colourful ceremony at the Serena Hotel, Dar-es-Salaam.

The graduation ceremony was graced by the CEO (Client-Side) Multichoice Tanzania, Jacqueline Woiso, herself a graduate of the programme. In her remarks, she recognized the commitment shown by Multichoice Group in training and grooming current and future leaders. She further noted the importance of training; “it is not just for the individual but for the larger community that they come from.” She congratulated and wished them well in their postings and future leadership journeys.

Carl Wagner, the Academic Director of the Programme, noted that as much as the participants were trained in their capacity, they will have to learn to pay forward – train and share with others in their teams. He urged them not to return to the old ways of doing business but instead apply their new learnings.

Stephen Kiror, Director of the SBS Regional Academies, emphasised the Business School’s commitment to developing great African leaders who break the barriers of poverty, gender inequality, technological inequality, and barriers to accessibility of resources and knowledge.

He congratulated the Multichoice Tanzania management team on their graduation and hoped the symbiotic relationship continues to enrich both partners in growing their businesses.

In line with the Business School’s quest to transform Africa by nurturing great leaders who espouse ethics and respect for our common social endowment, we will be launching the Strathmore Global Institute (SGI) with Tanzania set to be the first beneficiary. Through the Strathmore Global Institute, we aim to positively influence the development of the public and private sectors and all other sectors across the continent.
