The GSMA is the global association of mobile network operators. In this role, it closely analyses mobile telecommunications regulatory policy and the effects it has worldwide. For the Capacity Building programme, our in-house experts have used this knowledge to create high-quality training courses that rely heavily on real-world examples to highlight regulatory best practice. As a result, they provide students with the knowledge they need to handle the most pressing issues faced by regulatory authorities worldwide today.

How We Deliver Our Training

Via local partners

The GSMA principally delivers its courses through partnerships with international regulatory training bodies. This provides us with the flexibility to deliver courses where they are needed the most and ensures that we can run courses at a location near you.


If your organisation or department has a sufficiently large number of people that could benefit from our training, we can deliver our courses on-site. This allows your employees to receive their training at the same place where they practice their skills and reduces or cuts out travel and accommodation expenses.


All of our courses are available via this online portal, placing students in control of their own learning. Using this platform, students are able to study our courses from anywhere in the world, progress through the course at their own pace and schedule coursework around work and family.

Global Reach, Local Impact


The GSMA has trained students from over 141 countries around the world, passing on insights into the latest industry, policy and regulatory thinking that help local regulators and policymakers to positively shape the development of mobile services in their country. We’ve been able to achieve this global reach by forming close partnerships with local, respected training institutions.
