In 2020, MTN Group launched the Global Graduate Program with the goal of nurturing and accelerating the development of top graduates across their footprint. This transformative initiative reflects MTN's commitment to identifying and shaping future-fit talent transitioning from school to the labour market. 

As an annual intake program, the MTN Global Graduate Program continues to be a cornerstone of MTN's dedication to investing in the next generation of who are being promoted to work in the technology industry. The program empowers them with the skills, knowledge, and practical experiences necessary to excel in a rapidly evolving landscape and generate positive changes in their communities. 

Enock Luyenzi, MTN Rwanda General Manager Human Resources shares his excitement about the upcoming graduation, stating, “It is truly a wonderful moment to witness the MTN Global Graduates completing their intensive 18-month journey of hard work and continuous learning. We’ve seen the graduates immerse themselves in the market, delivering innovative solutions not only to close gaps within our industry but also within their communities. These individuals are not just graduates; they are future-fit and confident to make a lasting impact in the ever-evolving landscape of our industry and beyond."

The Global Graduates from each of the three cohorts have made significant contributions to the overall business by bringing forth innovations that our customers enjoy today.

In the recent years, the MTN Global graduates have shown an exceptional skill of turning creative ideas into real-world solutions, addressing important community needs. Notable accomplishments include the groundbreaking Tira4me, which allows one to borrow voice minutes on someone’s behalf, the user-friendly MoMo QR Code which simplifies electronic payments through easy QR code scans and the empowering Self-Reversal feature, enabling the retrieval of mistakenly sent funds without the need to visit service centres. These achievements highlight the MTN Global Graduates' commitment to innovation and community improvement.

“Our Global Graduate Program’s strategic objective is to develop competent young leaders capable of leading the delivery of a modern connected life for our customers. In this programme, graduates were equipped with critical skills and prepared for the new digital world. Once again, congratulations, Class of 2022, Cohort 3!

Their achievements are a testament to their incredible potential, and I have no doubt that they will conquer the future with confidence and make an indelible mark on the world,” stated Kagiso Malepe MTN Group Global leadership and career consultant.

The graduation ceremony marks the final stage of over of a year and a half of hard work, dedication, and perseverance by our 60 graduates.  MTN Rwanda is immensely proud of their achievements, and eager to honour their commitment to the mastery of learning and personal growth.
