Who are the stakeholders?

QFC Authority
Responsible for leading the expansion of Qatar’s financial services sector and for developing relationships with the regional and global financial community, the QFC Authority is a proud sponsor of the Kawader program.


A learning and development organization set up to deliver financial services training, QFBA will bring to the program valuable access to experienced faculty/instructor pool to deliver training towards professional qualifications.


Financial Sector
As an integral part of Qatar’s business landscape, the financial sector – local and multinational financial institutions in particular – will provide the internships as well as serve as a pool of potential employers for the students after successfully completing the program.


The Kawader initiative will draw students largely from local and international colleges and universities in Qatar. University partners for Kawader include Georgetown University, Qatar University, Stenden University Qatar, and Carnegie Mellon University Qatar.
