It is the group vision to become the regional mobile champion by 2015 through providing affordable connectivity by means of innovative technology, leveraging the talent of a pipeline of leaders. Axiata serves as a breeding ground of future leaders by investing in its people with the aim of “Advancing Asia”. In line with our parent company Axiata, at Robi, we too consider ourselves as a breeding ground for high performing people, who would contribute to not only taking the company ahead, but will contribute to the overall development of the country with their leadership skills. We continuously find innovative ways of attracting the best and befitting graduates to groom them for future leadership roles.
Our Young Talent Program (YTP) is one such initiative to groom future leaders. It offers Bangladeshi graduates from leading universities in the world, the opportunity to develop into future leaders for the company and country as well through employment. The program was developed in line with Axiata’s vision to be the regional mobile champion by 2015. The objective of the program is to develop talents to be the leaders for tomorrow in each country’s operations. Our objective is to develop the youth of today into leaders of tomorrow by developing functional and leadership competencies, giving global exposure and accelerating career path. These promising young scholars will be given an experience unlike any other, in the hopes of nurturing and developing them to realize their full potential.
Unlike traditional scholarships that focus only on academics, the Axiata Young Talent Program complements classroom education or scholarships with the 1 year intensive Accelerated Development Program that aspires to nurture individuals holistically.
