The ninth "Financial Cadres" program's digital registration is open until December 31, according to a Monday announcement from Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA). The program's start, which is a continuation of earlier editions and highlights the program's significance for university students as well as the financial and banking sectors in the State of Qatar, was welcomed by QFBA CEO Khalifa Al Salahi Al Yafei.
Al Yafei continued, saying that the programme aims to give participants the most recent theoretical and practical knowledge and skills relevant to the financial and banking industry. It does this out of a sense of responsibility to the industry, a desire to meet its needs, and an effort to enhance the quality of its services.
He emphasised that, in keeping with the objectives of the Qatar National Vision 2030, the QFBA will keep up its efforts to qualify national competencies employed in the financial sector, helping them grow and enhance their professional capabilities. It will also continue to support state efforts to nationalise their workforce. He stated that he hoped to do more by training fresh groups of young Qatari talent to make meaningful contributions to the all-encompassing renaissance movement that the nation is currently experiencing.
In the new version, the scope of educational units will be expanded to include six educational units, which are an introduction to financial services and financial technology, personal skills and professional readiness, leadership and management. This is the first time since the program's launch, according to Majed Abdulaziz Al Khulaifi, director of QFBA's Professional Training and Development Department.
Three of the program's four specialised tracks—the Chartered Financial Analyst certificate, the Institute of Internal Auditors' Internal Audit Practitioner certificate, and the Chartered Institute's Risk Certificate in Financial Services—will be given to participants who plan to enter the workforce, Al Khulaifi continued.
The program's previous iteration had remarkable success in all areas, including the addition of five new educational units to the curriculum and an increase in the number of graduates to 72 male and female students. Along with 40 seminars and talks, it also witnessed collaboration with eighteen respected local and international organisations, and it hosted fourteen visitors who were top personnel of the banking, insurance, and investment industries.
The programme, which is aimed at Qataris and the offspring of Qatari women, intends to provide participants the chance to advance their leadership and managerial abilities as well as their understanding of the financial services industry. Sponsored by Qatar National Bank, Masraf Al Rayan, Ahli Bank, Dukhan Bank, Commercial Bank, Qatar Insurance Company, Qatar Financial Centre, Qatar Development Bank, Doha Bank, and Qatar Islamic Bank, it is being launched in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour, the Civil Service and Government Development Bureau, and the Qatar Central Bank.
