French Telecom’s Orange Brand has set up an Orange  Campus in Dakar Senegal that will be able to offer development programmes to the  1,000 managers of the Group’s subsidiaries in Western Africa (Mali,  Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Niger, Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal). Managers from  other Orangesubsidiaries in French-speaking Africa – the Central  African Republic, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of the Congo –  may also benefit from the programmes on offer. In addition, the site  will host managers from all of the Group’s countries through its  international programmes, fostering diversity, which is integral to  Orange Campus’s identity.

In 2013, more than 20 different managerial development programmes are scheduled at Orange Campus Dakar.

The  new Orange Campus site consists of several classrooms, a library area  and an amphitheatre, and was designed to be configurable to the  different teaching methods used during the sessions. Located next to the  Orange-Sonatel Competency Development Centre, the site’s surface area  of more than 300m2 can accommodate up to 160 people.

The  programmes to be offered at the Orange Campus Dakar site are focused on  three main priorities that are designed to strengthen the international  approach favoured in Africa. These include:

  • basic courses to give new managers the ability to take up their responsibilities quickly
  • collective development programmes – the “collective challenges” – to  enable executive managers to mobilize and develop their teams
  • individual development programmes and management fundamentals to reinforce key managerial practices

In  addition, a “made-to-measure” offering builds on existing programmes  while targeting the managerial priorities of each country and adapting  to the number of managers participating in the session.
