As the event’s gold sponsor, ABK is reinforcing its commitment to investing in local talent and providing opportunities to students who aspire a career in the banking sector.
Students and alumni visited the ABK booth, where they were provided with networking opportunities and career advice from the Bank. Visitors were also introduced to the processes within the banking sector and were provided with access to an array of in-person and online courses to enrich their learning experience.

Students were also presented the opportunities for growth and development within ABK. Namely, ABK’s Retail Banking Division (RBD) Academy, designed to give trainees the opportunity to be fully immersed in the working environment of various departments within the Bank and get familiar with the day-to-day operations, providing them with a more hands-on experience.
