The Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Gulf Air, the Kingdom’s national carrier, for cooperation between the two entities, facilitating training and development courses, in the field of Information Technology (IT) and project management for the airline’s IT staff.
On this occasion, The BIBF’s Deputy Director, Dr. Ahmed AbdulHameed AlShaikh said, “This partnership outlines the importance of continuous training and development, and with today’s corporate requirements it becomes imperative for companies and organisations to continuously update staff on the dynamic changes in the information technology field, and to provide them with experienced and expert training, for professional development—the BIBF has entered into this alliance to facilitate the delivery of what business professionals and our corporate partners need.”
On his part, Dr. Jassim Haji, Director of IT at Gulf Air said, “We are delighted to launch this partnership with the BIBF, which plays a key role in shaping the economic future of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and with Gulf Air’s alliance and its heritage of developing inspired global leaders, we believe that continuous training is key to sustained development in individuals, teams and organisations. Partnering with the BIBF will bring global opportunities for the our valued human capital.”
Through this partnership, the BIBF and Gulf Air will cooperate to provide global learning opportunities in the IT and Project Management fields, through specialised courses and masterclasses that go beyond traditional business theory. The programmes will deliver cutting-edge, practical education in business, cyber security, networking and other areas, preparing professionals to do business efficiently and professionally.
