QFBA chief executive Dr Abdulaziz al-Horr said the broader focus for the QFBA is to help brands, including financial services providers in Qatar and businesses of all sizes, to identify their organisational training requirements and tailor bespoke solutions for their staff. "The QFBA is already working with many large organisations both in the government and private sectors, including brands in both the B2B and B2C arenas in Qatar that have active financial training mandates for their staff," he said. QFBA currently has associations with 56 direct faculty members of various specialisations, supported by six specialised companies, and is tapping into their expertise based on the needs of the financial sector and other firms, its spokesman said. The academy is working to grow these partnerships in the upcoming year through customised courses, he said, adding this year, the QFBA offered 87 customised courses spanning 300 total days to clients who requested bespoke solutions for staff development. This custom calendar is supported by its open calendar programme that provides companies the flexibility to train smaller numbers of participants, sharing the programme with other participants along with other institutes.
