The Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) held a graduation ceremony for the sixth cohort of the ‘Kawader’ programme, which is under the patronage of the Minister of Finance.
The ceremony saw the graduation of 25 outstanding young Qataris, bringing the total number of participants in ‘Kawader’ since its inception to 149 students, who have been primed to contribute effectively to the human capital development of the country’s financial services sector, the national economy’s progress, and to the realisation of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
During the three-month programme, all 25 students interned at top international and local organisations while two candidates were successfully employed during the programme in the Qatar Central Bank and Qatar Financial Centre.
Furthermore, all 25 students completed certification studies in IISI and in Business Banking and Conduct.
“It is with such initiatives and capacity-building programmes that QFBA reaffirms its role in supporting Qatar’s 2030 vision, by empowering the Qatari human capital,” its chief executive Dr Khalid al-Horr said.
Kawader differentiates itself by offering an intensive and holistic training programme that combines academic learning with practical, on-the-job training under one course, offering students direct access to world-leading financial institutions and a collection of carefully-crafted, specialised courses backed by world-class professional accreditations that encompass several aspects of the financial sector.
The programme is sponsored Qatar Financial Centre Authority (QFCA), QNB, Commercial Bank, Barwa Bank, Ahlibank, Doha Bank, IBQ, al khaliji, Qatar Development Bank, Standard Chartered, Qatar Islamic Bank and Masraf Al Rayan while the programme partners include PricewaterhouseCoopers, McKinsey, Qatar Financial Market Authority, Bank of Tokyo, Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority, Qatar Investment Authority, Al Koot, Qatar Stock Exchange and QInvest.
“Kawader, with its unique training programme, is one of the main sources to provide the financial services sector with young, talented Qatari professionals with the right set of skills and knowledge to go on to play important and vital roles in the economy,” according to Yousuf Mohamed al-Jaida, QFCA chief executive.
