WINDHOEK – The Nedbank Namibia Management Development Programme (MDP) Class of 2018 recently celebrated their graduation. The 13 candidates, who are all on supervisory or management level, were selected from across the business to undertake the intense six month programme.

The MDP is part of our human capital development programme, which provides professionals with learning and development opportunities in banking. It also feeds into the identification, development and retention of talent within the Nedbank.

Speaking at the ceremony which took place last week, Nedbank Chief Operating Officer: Strategy & Human Capital Silke van der Merwe told the graduates that the programme is aimed at better equipping them for their roles within Nedbank.

“This programme builds leadership and management effectiveness and covers relevant subjects and competencies for today’s manager to thrive in an increasingly complex environment. Since the MDP’s inception in 2016, Nedbank staff members from various departments from different geographic locations have come together, built off one another and gained the necessary skills to enhance their careers, the careers of their co-workers and the achievements of the bank as a whole.”
The graduates include Magdalena Botha, Isolde Hauala, Mariska Van Wyk, Rozias Muzimbwa, Shirlene Brits, Jose Mathews; Portia Timbo, Wilma Kruger, Andries Swartz, Brian Matthys, Charlotte Strauss, Olivia Jansen and Sylvia Van Wyk.

The Nedbank MDP is a collaboration with the University of Stellenbosch Business School and forms part of Nedbank’s Leadership Development Programme. Nedbank has initiated the programme to upskill and better equip employees in leadership roles within the business.
