The Head of State made this assertion today during his keynote address at the launch of the programme at the George Walcott Lecture Theatre at the Turkeyen Campus.

“This programme is geared towards developing the minds in a policy framework, in an analytical framework; bringing the output to a level in which they (the graduates) can apply themselves to very complex problems and issues,” President Ali added. 

The President further outlined the significance of sustainable development and the way the programme highlighted a strategic level of thinking.

He also added that the programme is about aligning theory with practice and with real-life problems. It also includes the development of each individual’s capability to deal with those challenges strategically. The programme will also aid the authorities in getting prepared for future challenges after appreciating the evolution of such challenges.
