Vodafone Qatar has concluded a hybrid Internship Programme and Telecoms Mini-MBA 2020 as part of its continued commitment to developing the talents of the Qatari youth.
The programmes are designed to equip Qatari students and graduates with essential knowledge and skills to help them build their careers in the telecommunications sector so that they become a part of a growing a pool of talent whose influence will be crucial to the future digital aspirations of Qatar.
The hybrid internship programme gave student interns at Vodafone Qatar the flexibility to work on projects alongside teams in an office setting and remotely, giving them a valuable opportunity to build a professional network while learning the in-demand skills that enhance their future employment prospects.
In parallel, Vodafone Qatar ran the fast-tracked Telecoms Mini-MBA exclusively for its talented Qatari employees. The accelerated business programme delivered over 35 hours of tuition focused on developing their in-depth knowledge in all aspects of the global telecommunications business, covering technology, leadership and management.
Khames Mohammed Al Naimi, chief human resources officer, Vodafone Qatar, said: “We believe in preparing young talents who aim to build their careers in telecommunications to become productive contributors to the growth of the industry by helping them learn the business language and understand the systems of thinking.
“Elevating the technical skills and management capabilities of young Qataris through internships and MBA programmes underscores our commitment to supporting the Qatar National Vision of creating a sustainable and knowledge-based economy.”
Nojoud Ali Al Dahri, Intern at Vodafone Qatar, said: “Working for Vodafone Qatar has broadened my knowledge of the telecommunications sector. This insight and the specialist training I received as an intern reinforced my confidence and raised my interest in pursuing a career in this direction.”
Mohammed Saif Al Naimi, Intern at Vodafone Qatar, said: “The internship has prepped me well for the professional world. I would be delighted to secure a job in telecommunications at this time as it is a dynamic industry and I’m ready to go back to learn more from the best.”
Najlaa Mubarak Al Kuwari, Vodafone Qatar Cyber Security Risk and Compliance analyst, who took the Mini MBA, said: “Completing the MBA programme has been very rewarding for me, both personally and professionally. Not only has it equipped me with new skills to better manage my job, it has also expanded my professional network and has given me so much more confidence to take on greater responsibility. I am grateful to be a part of a forward-thinking organisation, whose leaders believe in investing in and improving their employees’ skills and capabilities.”
Sheikh Faisal Hamad Al Thani, Vodafone Qatar senior specialist Corporate Social Responsibility, who also took the Mini MBA, said: “I did not know quite what to expect when applying for my internship with Vodafone Qatar; I knew I had to take part in it as a prerequisite to graduation. Now that I’ve completed it, I’m extremely satisfied with the results. The fact that I did not have to step outside the organisation to complete this accelerated business programme has been very convenient for me. I’m grateful to Vodafone Qatar for offering a fantastic opportunity to young employees like myself. The programme has certainly broadened my telecoms knowledge and equipped me to better understand the field that I’m in and thrive for continuous professional advancement.”
