DOHA: The Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA), in partnership with Qatar Financial Centre Authority (QFCA), yesterday announced the exclusive launch of the internationally-acclaimed ‘Future CEO Program’.
Slated to begin in September this year, the Program is part of the Academy’s strategy to unlock human potential and empower professionals to reach new heights through effective education and advanced training.
“It is my profound pleasure to announce to you QFBA’s and QFC’s exclusive launch of the world-renowned ‘Future CEO Program’ in Qatar, presenting the country’s future leaders across all business sectors, with a unique chance to build on their strengths and learn all aspects of successfully running an organisation, while preparing them to become tomorrow’s distinguished CEOs,” said Dr Abdul Aziz Al Horr, CEO, QFBA in a press conference held at its West Bay headquarters.
“We all have areas of our lives where we have talent, expertise and capacity for success. And those of us who possess the ability to influence, the desire to excel, and the confidence to explore and break new ground, have the potential to become great leaders. Because leadership is a mix of science and art, a unique blend of inherent qualities, honed and perfected with the right set of training, practice and experience,” he added.
The Program provides senior managers and corporations eager to invest in leadership development, with the opportunity to acquire and develop the skills, knowledge and contacts they need to meet challenges, manage growth, and effectively lead organisations in various business sectors.
“We are glad to join QFBA in launching another leading Program that aims to address the challenges and opportunities for professionals in the financial and business services industry in Qatar,” said Fahad Zainal, Chief Administration Officer of the QFCA.
“Providing international certificates duly approved and granted by highly reputable international organisations is key for improving the technical competence of our future Qatari business leaders, enhancing their career paths, providing them with an opportunity to excel in current and future roles, and ultimately improving the level of business performance,” he said.
In addition to offering senior executives the chance to develop the strategic skills needed to successfully manage a company and drive its growth, the Program also provides formal recognition of its members’ professional qualifications and experience through certification from The CEO Institute, the first global certification body for CEOs.
The applications for ‘Future CEO Program’ are open for senior Qatari managers till June 23. QFBA and QFC will jointly sponsor the program, with participants expected to pay only a nominal joining fee. The program is set to kick off in September 2016, at QFBA headquarters.
