Warwick in London ran their first executive education course on Tuesday 20 June 2017, the unique one day course Foresight on Africa: Be Prepared for the Future was attended by a group of ten professionals from a range of organisations including Deutsche Bank, Arup, Small Foundation and Global Map Aid.
The course has been designed in collaboration with the School of International Futures and the Ministry of Defence’s Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre (DCDC) to offer a multi-disciplinary and multi-national analysis of Africa’s possible trajectories over the next 20 years along. Professor Franklyn Lisk from the Department of Politics and International Studies also contributed a session.
The feedback from the course participants has been excellent. Professor Muthoo, Dean of Warwick in London said of the course,
I am extremely pleased with the success of our first course, the participants made the course worthwhile and enjoyable and went home with deeper and broader understanding of the issues.”
