Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Bank Mus­cat, the flag­ship fi­nan­cial ser­vices provider in the sul­tanate, has evoked good re­sponse to en­rol­ment of a new batch at Al Wath­bah Academy in Dakhliyah. Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Al Wath­bah Academy pro­grammes in Mus­cat, So­har and Salalah, Bank Mus­cat is in­tro­duc­ing the train­ing pro­gramme in sup­port of en­trepreneurs in Dakhliyah.

The pro­gramme launched by the bank as part of its ‘Let’s Do More’ vi­sion and ‘Im­prints’ so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity ini­tia­tive to sup­port SMEs is tar­geted at 100 per cent Omani-owned SME en­ter­prises with ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ships with Bank Mus­cat. The busi­ness should also have a track record of prof­itabil­ity over the last two to three years.

In­ter­ested ap­pli­cants are re­quired to regis­ter on­line at al­wath­bah@bankmus­cat.com and the last date for re­ceiv­ing the ap­pli­ca­tions is Au­gust 17.

The unique Al Wath­bah Academy re­flects the bank’s com­mit­ment to sus­tain­able so- cial de­vel­op­ment, com­ple­ment­ing gov­ern­ment ef­forts in strength­en­ing the role of SMEs in the eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of Oman.

Al Wath­bah Academy pro­grammes across Oman im­part the re­quired skills and guid­ance for en­trepreneurs drawn from di­verse fields to em­bark on suc­cess­ful SME busi­ness ven­tures. The pro­gramme leads to ac­cred­ited in­ter­na­tional cer­ti­fi­ca­tion by Project Man­age­ment In­sti­tute (PMI).

The unique SME ini­tia­tive plays an im­por­tant role in fill­ing the gaps and em­pow­er­ing en­trepreneurs to chart suc­cess­ful busi­ness ven­tures.

The Al Wath­bah Academy was launched by the bank in Au­gust 2014 as a cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) ini­tia­tive aimed at equip­ping youth with self-em­ploy­ment skills boost­ing the coun­try’s progress and de­vel­op­ment.

The sup­port to SMEs stems from the bank’s com­mit­ment to cre­ate self-em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for Omani youth who con­sti­tute more than 50 per cent of the coun­try’s pop­u­la­tion.
