Kuwait Institute of Banking Studies
We endorse a number of Kuwait Institute of Banking Studies training programmes and provide certification to students on completion of their studies. This requires an ‘annual report’ to ensure that the content, level, assessment and overall quality of their programmes remain relevant which is required to be recognised as one of our Trusted Partners.
We have a long-standing relationship with the Kuwait Institute of Bankers and provide recognition to their local training programmes that are delivered to Kuwaiti students that work for the local banks. This provides them with external recognition of their programmes and ensures that their programmes remain relevant and up-to-date.
