National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) celebrated recently the conclusion of its 2011 Summer Internship Program for high school and college students. NBK honored the interns after successfully completing the summer training period.
NBK Public Relations Manager, Abdulmohsen Alrushaid said that more than 300 students participated in the Summer Internship Program of 2011. Students participated in field activities including visits to the NBK Hospital and other public and private institutions.
Alrushaid stressed that NBK views the Summer Internship Program as an extension of NBK's education outreach services. “This program is a demonstration of NBK’s long-standing social involvement and commitment towards providing Kuwait’s younger generation with appropriate opportunities to experience firsthand the banking profession.
The five hour daily sessions featured a mixture of theoretical and practical training dedicated to providing the interns with valuable knowledge on a variety of subjects including team work, creative thinking, means of self expression and modern banking procedures, in addition to providing interns with greater exposure to daily banking practices and norms,” Alrushaid added.
The 2011 Summer Internship Program follows several successful years of NBK Summer Internship Programs. NBK regularly organizes and designs events and packages for the youth of the country to familiarize them with the world of banking and make them responsible citizens.
