GUST’s PACE and Boubyan Bank Successfully Conclude First Leadership Program with DePaul University

23 November 2016

GUST Professional Advancement and Continuing Education (PACE) has successfully concluded the first customized leadership training program for Boubyan Bank employees on its campus.  The program, entitled “Emerging Leaders Program”, helped strengthen the leadership skills of 50 aspiring leaders within Boubyan Bank. 


The program was led by Dr. Erin Nelson, Dr. Nezih Altay, and Dr. Charles E. Naquin from DePaul University in the United States, and represents its first venture into the Kuwaiti market.  The program was pitched at a masterclass level. The collaborative synergy between Boubyan Bank, GUST, and DePaul University ensured the delivery of a high quality program in the market.  



General Manager of Human Resources Group at Boubyan, Mr. Adel Hammad, said, “We are delighted that GUST is a partner that offers the best possible training to equip our leaders with the right skills to succeed in their professional journey. We as an institution are committed to the growth and development of our up and coming crop of leaders, and with GUST as our preferred professional development partner, we are confident of our future!”



PACE’s mission within GUST is to offer high-quality, continuing & professional education, lifelong learning opportunities, and innovative learning solutions to individuals and corporations in a stimulating environment. By linking two prestigious institutions, PACE solidifies itself as a market leader in providing tailor-made training based on market needs to help propel organizations to growth and success.


PACE Director at GUST, Mr. Sadegh Zobeidi said, “Our aim is to deliver the best leadership programs to the Kuwait market in cooperation with the best universities.  In the future, we hope to conduct a similar event to the public so that more people can benefit from such a reputable and effective program.”



GUST’s PACE is constantly chosen amongst other entities to execute such programs. This is due to its strong reputation locally for providing high quality training to a number of organizations. It is also known for its role as an accredited training center for course such as CFA and CMA, and is internationally recognized as a standardized testing center for exams such as IELTS.


Over the last few years, PACE’s portfolio of public courses has significantly expanded to include GMAT, CMA, CPA exam preparation, Healthcare Management & Quality, and even a Private Pilot’s License Program.
