Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) congratulated 6 students from the 1st batch of intakes, who recently graduated from the ‘IT Academy’ after successfully completing a six month intensive program.
Students received training on the main IT systems used at ABK, including the Finacle Core Banking solution, the PowerCARD payment processing system, and key Oracle and Microsoft solutions. The program also provided students with the human and soft skills needed to prepare them for entry into the workplace, and to enable them to develop careers as IT professionals in the banking industry.
ABK launched the ABK IT Academy as part of its commitment to supporting the Kuwaiti education sector and its active role in driving nationalization within the country, with the intention of employing these graduates in the IT division as this is one of the areas within banking that falls short of local talent.
The bank is investing in technology and innovation in line with its ‘Simpler Banking’ and digital transformation strategy, and continuously strives to improve its customers’ digital experience.
