The UAE National Day is a time to reflect on the amazing vision of the country’s founding fathers, and celebrate the growth witnessed in the last five decades. At our national day celebrations, we also supported our talented students by providing them the space to showcase their projects, as part of our commitment to encourage our students’ skills of presenting. It was also a pleasure to have a group of bankers from RAK Bank amidst us as part of the celebrations.”

In line with the government’s Emiratization drive in the financial sector, EIBFS continues to work with the HR and talent heads of UAE banks and insurance companies to build a future generation of Emirati leaders. Our vision is also to provide necessary upskilling in technology and digitisation in keeping with the country’s growth vision.”
