National Bank of Kuwait (NBK), the leading bank in Kuwait and the highest rated bank in the Middle East, launched the second in a series of the 2010 Summer Internship Program two-week courses custom-made for high school students aged between 15 and 20 years.
NBK Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Shaikha Khalid Al Bahar said that NBK views the Summer Internship Program, specially designed for students, as an extension of NBK's education outreach services and a demonstration of the Bank's long-standing social involvement as well as its national commitment towards providing the young generations with the appropriate opportunities to experience first hand how the actual professional banking issues and transaction are handled and processed.
Highlighting the remarkably evolutionary story of NBK, Al Bahar indicated that NBK started almost six decades ago from a space of less than three shops to become the leading bank in Kuwait and the Middle East, boasting a total assets of Billion US$ 43 and an international branch network of more than 150 branches, representative offices and subsidiaries.
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. It is noteworthy that more than 4000 youths have benefited from NBK Summer Internship Program.
