DUBAI: Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB), as part of its contribution to the UAE community, announced the launch of an annual Iktaseb professional summer training programme for young UAE nationals.

Emiratis — 105 in all — from high schools, colleges and universities across the UAE have embarked on the Iktaseb programme, which offers professional training opportunities to young people aspiring to a career in Islamic banking and finance.

Over the four-week programme, participants will first be introduced to the principles and workings of Sharia-compliant banking, before engaging in practical training in the day-to-day operations of DIB. Upon completion of the programme, students will receive programme completion certification from DIB and will be given priority in future hiring by the bank.

Obaid Al Shamsi, chief of Human Resources, DIB, said, “Hundreds of young UAE nationals have joined the programme to gain invaluable knowledge about the Sharia-compliant financial services sector. The Iktaseb programme is one of many programmes run by DIB with the objective of serving the community as per the bank’s vision to enhance the skills of young UAE nationals.”

Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB), which currently operates 75 branches in the UAE, supports the communities in which it operates, through the DIB Foundation, a non-profit social, humanitarian and charitable organisation which distributes millions of dirhams to good causes at home and abroad each year.
