Many Kawader students have got this incredible opportunity in the past and we are delighted that this year too, some of our students would be able to gain access to global financial landscape at MUFGs international offices. We would once again like to express our gratitude to MUFG management to offer this immense opportunity to our students nurturing their vision to grow.”
Meanwhile, head of MUFGs Doha branch Katanori Otsuji said: “We at MUFG are honoured to have supported the Kawader programme since its inception by offering Qatari students internships at our offices around the world. My colleagues and I are always impressed by the enthusiasm and competence of the students who join our teams, as well as their ability to make a lasting impression within a short space of time”
“We wish to congratulate the QFBA on the excellent work they are doing to develop Qatari talent through this outstanding training programme and MUFG is committed to maintaining our partnership with Kawader for years to come.”
MUFG is the first financial group to host QFBA interns internationally in London and Asia. Having completed its fifth year with QFBA with the 2018-2019 cohort, MUFG is vested in continuing this support.
The Kawader programme is a training internship, which aims to provide best-in-class experiences to interns for a minimum of four weeks. The initiative hopes to encourage interns to take up careers in financial services, and to create greater collaboration with the academic sector.
