Building Human Connections Globally

Communities of Practice

Our Communities of Practice are a core element of our capacity building programmes. We maintain several professional Communities of Practice (CoPs) across the globe where our students meet face-to-face regularly to discuss industry-wide innovations and challenges and how these play out in their local market context. They have the opportunity to engage with their peers and foster communication, cooperation, knowledge sharing, and innovation. Our CoP’s play a crucial role in us achieving our purpose.
