Al Salam Bank Welcomes Student Delegation from Al-Iman Schools
Al Salam Bank recently received a delegation of high school students from Al-Iman Schools at the Bank’s headquarters. During the visit, the students were introduced to the basics of Islamic banking, its distinction from traditional banking services, and highlighting the mechanism of work behind banking and finance institutions. The students were also given the opportunity to see how daily operations are conducted, further reinforcing the school’s career guidance efforts.
