GE signs MoU with MiSK to train young Saudi professionals

GE signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud Foundation (MiSK) in the field of education and training, to design and launch training programs for young Saudi professionals and executives.
As part of Saudi government’s efforts to establish a knowledge-based economy and develop the skills of Nationals, the MoU outlines the terms to put together special training programs for the leadership development of young Saudi professionals as well as provide consultancy.
The MoU was signed at a ceremony at GE’s Crotonville facilities by Nidal Ghizawi, director of the GE Saudi Technology & Innovation Center, and Bader Al-Asaker, secretary general of MiSK Foundation.
Under the MoU, GE will offer access for Saudi professionals to high-level corporate leadership training at the GE Crotonville Customer Education facility in the US.
Special courses will be developed for Saudi executives for delivery either in Crotonville or at various locations across Saudi Arabia.
GE will also support MiSK and other entities to establish a Crotonville-like Saudi Leadership Academy in the Kingdom.
Hisham Al-Bahkali, GE’s president and CEO for Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, said: “The agreement with MiSK has strategic importance in nurturing the next generation of Saudi business leaders, who can contribute to achieving the goals of Saudi Vision 2030.”
He added: “Saudi Arabia has a wealth of young talent, and by building their skillsets in specific domains, including corporate leadership, we are supporting the Kingdom’s goal to accelerate economic and industrial diversification. This will also help in creating high quality jobs for Saudi young professionals and in building an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Saudi Arabia to help achieve transformational growth.”
The signing of this MoU builds on the efforts of MiSK, a non-profit organization.
Founded in 1956, Crotonville is claimed to be the world’s first major corporate university.

MYNM welcomes new BMW X5 in Saudi Arabia

MYNM, the official importer of BMW Group in Saudi Arabia, has announced the arrival of the new BMW X5. MYNM welcomed the new vehicle in the BMW Automall showroom in Jeddah on Nov. 11.

Compared to its predecessor, the BMW X5 has grown in all dimensions while still retaining its charismatic character and proportions. Its design language has become more athletic, with more clearly defined surfaces and even more precise lines; the signature sculpted bonnet has a muscular appearance, and the front overhang is even shorter than the previous model. 

The new X5 boasts a dynamic front design with its large BMW kidney grille. The standard LED headlights are very slim and wrap around into the front wings giving it its unique character. 

The new BMW X5 will be launched with two power-boosted engines with a three-liter six-cylinder petrol engine with 340 hp and a max. torque of 450 Nm. 

The BMW X5 will be available for sale across MYNM showrooms this December. Customers can view the model in person and schedule a test drive to experience it.
