We are pleased to announce that Telecoms Academy will be running the Telecoms Mini MBA executive training programme alongside this year's AfricaCom 2015.
TELECOMS MINI MBA
16-20 November 2015, Cape Town at AfricaCom

The Telecoms Mini MBA is a 5-day university accredited telecoms management programme from the leaders in telecom training, analysis and research. The programme has been attended by over 5,000 professionals from 350 companies worldwide. Some of the leading operators, vendors, services, and regulators in the global telecoms industry have sent delegates to the programme.

It is highly participative, focusing on real business, technology and industry issues and designed to give you a critical understanding of the key competency areas required for success within the telecommunications industry – enabling you to make more informed and commercially viable strategic decisions. The business simulation is the vehicle through which we maximise the competency development and ensure ideas on strategic implementation can be tested and appraised.

The programme covers the five key competency areas of:
- Strategy & Business Environment
- Technology
- Finance
- Leadership & People Management
- Marketing & Customer Focus

Special Guest Speaker: Alan Knott-Craig Jr, Founder of Project Isizwe
We are also pleased to announce that Alan Knott-Craig Jr. will be guest speaker at the Telecoms Mini MBA. He will give a unique insight into what Project Isizwe does; how many people now have Internet access through it; who uses the Internet through its coverage and what they use it for; how the business model works; what the municipalities are charged; and his plans for rolling out outside of South Africa.
