In collaboration with Qatar University (QU), Commercial Bank is launching a first-ever competition for QU students, inviting them to unleash their creativity and design their own space at Qatar University Metro Station.
Enjoying a sole and exclusive presence inside the Qatar Rail Metro Station at QU, Commercial Bank is seeking through the contest, to allocate a dedicated space for students, where they can study, learn about finance, and to use as they see best, according to a statement.
Participants are requested to come up with an idea of how to use the allocated space in the Commercial Bank branch at Qatar University Metro station, name their project, and pitch in their ideas. The idea can be presented by one person or a group of up to four people, in whatever medium or method they wish to get their concept across.
To help guide students through the process, Commercial Bank held an online mentoring session yesterday. Mentors from QU and Commercial Bank were available for two hours to answer all questions regarding the contest and advise on the project.
Commercial Bank’s EGM, Consumer Banking, Amit Sah said: “When we first initiated this contest, we were looking for a concept that embraces creativity and innovation. Something that was meaningful to students, useful, yet can still be fun and that with our expertise, help the students take an idea and bring it to life. This exciting project is linked to our digital banking solution called Sadara Youth, a prestigious, exclusive digital way of banking that is
also fun and informative.”
Commenting on the competition, Hussein Ali al-Abdulla, EGM, Chief Marketing Officer at Commercial Bank, said: “Being one of our fundamental 5 C’s, creativity and innovation are key pillars of the future. Hence, we are pleased to launch such a competition that sheds light on the competencies and talents of the students and proves to them that everything is possible.”
