Mobiltel Partners with eCornell for Leadership Training
Bulgaria's telecom leader to offer Ivy League professional development training online.
ITHACA, NEW YORK, October 2, 2012 -- Mobiltel, the premier supplier of telecommunications services in Bulgaria, has partnered with eCornell to provide leadership development training for the company's high-potential managers.
Mobiltel's internal Leadership Development Program is designed to cultivate leadership competencies among managers and put into practice the five principles of a broader organizational redesign initiative: customer centricity, time-to-market, value-based growth, cost control and innovation.
Mobiltel's program is built around a core of Cornell University faculty-authored courses in Leadership and Strategic Management, Financial Management, Management Essentials, Hospitality Management and Marketing.
"We are very excited about this new partnership with eCornell," said Petar Ivanov, HR Program Manager at Mobiltel. "Our senior managers now have access to a top-level, Ivy League education that would have been logistically impossible outside of online delivery. These courses offer valuable skill-building opportunities for our managers and, in the end, will translate into helping us achieve our company goals."
eCornell's unique approach to e-learning combines the most effective elements of a world-class, Ivy League classroom with the flexibility of an online learning environment. eCornell courses—self-paced and 100 percent online—are "instructor-facilitated" to help guide a cohort of 20 participants through challenging, real-world exercises with practical on-the-job application. Classes enable learners to be immersed in learning that also fosters collaboration, interaction and networking.
"Mobiltel came to us seeking a flexible but rigorous leadership development solution," explained Tom Abogabal, Vice President of Global Sales for eCornell. "Mobiltel managers will now be able to take the skills, concepts and best practices they learn in our courses and apply them immediately and directly to their jobs."
eCornell, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cornell University, provides many of the world's leading organizations with online professional and executive development in the areas of leadership and management, human resources, financial management, healthcare, marketing and hospitality management. eCornell's proven course development model and asynchronous instructor-led course delivery provide for engaging, rigorous and interactive learning.
