H.E. Sultan Bin Nasser Al Suwaidi, Central Bank Governor, said: “e-Learning is an important tool in the continuing education and training programs that are being constantly implemented in the banking sector. We are therefore pleased to partner with Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University in developing modern and customized e-Learning solutions that match the quality standards of the Central Bank.
