The Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) has participated in the ‘2018 Euromoney Qatar Conference’, which welcomed several government officials, senior economists, and bankers from across the region, as well as international delegations.

The event focused on Qatar’s post-blockade strategy and its development as a sustainable economy. The keynote speakers included HE the Minister of Finance, Ali Sherif al-Emadi and HE the Governor of Qatar Central Bank, Sheikh Abdullah bin Saoud al-Thani.

The event also served as a launch pad for the QFBA to announce its 2019 portfolio and create awareness among participants and delegates. The QFBA has enriched its portfolio by including 14 accredited certifications being offered from nine different international awarding bodies.

In addition, the QFBA has also introduced fintech and blockchain in its customised B2B options based on updated ‘5 Ds’ (diagnose, design, deliver, evaluate, debrief) customisation approach. Furthermore, the academy plans to increase overall programme portfolio with a sharp focus on banking, finance, and customer service.

QFBA CEO Dr Khalid al-Horr said, “Our participation in the ‘2018 Euromoney Qatar Conference’ demonstrates our commitment to develop a self-sufficient, robust economy, which is aligned with the Qatar National Vision 2030. The conference is a well-established platform for experts from the financial landscape to share knowledge and expertise regarding the changing financial sector in Qatar and the world. QFBA will continue to support initiatives which promote the development of Qatar’s economy.”

He added, “Such conferences are precisely what we need here in Qatar to reinforce productive dialogue especially one that focuses on the future and the challenges of the national economy, the future direction of hydrocarbon demand, and the importance of having a strong and innovative financial system.

“Euromoney also strengthens our position as a key enabler by sharing the stage with the most influential organisations and regulators of Qatar’s financial sector, such as QNB, QIIB, Commercial Bank, QFMA, and CFA society, which, I believe, is the real proud moment for all of us at QFBA.”

Since its establishment, the QFBA has played a key role in developing a world-class financial service industry and broaden its platform to cater to the needs of the country and reaffirm the economic attractiveness as a nation.

The QFBA is now a national provider for customised B2B training, open-portfolio training, and certification programmes for businesses and financing institutions.

The QFBA, in affiliation with Northumbria Newcastle, offers bachelor degrees that are endorsed by world-leading professional accreditation bodies. The QFBA’s customised programmes partners with leading international institutions to create a five-phase programme process, that will help professionals address organisational challenges and support them to achieve their business objectives through their employees. In 2019, the academy will be offering 14 different certifications.
