Professional Development Training for Executives from Telecom Egypt

The Center’s outreach program was instrumental in arranging a unique professional development training for 30 executives from Telecom Egypt, to take place at the new international headquarters of COMCAST in downtown Philadelphia in February 2008.  The group is being sponsored by MEC's partner in the business community, the Global Interdependence Center, and will receive extensive training in best practices in business and personnel management from top managers and executives at COMCAST.  A reception will be held at the Pyramid Club following the training, and will feature Dr. Ashraf El Rabiey, Minister Plenipotentiary and Head of the Economic and Commercial Bureau of the Embassy of Egypt and other diplomatic and commercial representatives from the Middle East.  The reception is co-sponsored by the Center, the African Studies Center and the Lauder Institute of Management and International Studies at Penn.
