Internships to Qatar-based students
As part of KPMG in Qatar’s ongoing commitment to communities, the firm has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with AFG College with the University of Aberdeen, which outlines a framework for the two organizations to provide students with crucial insight into the professional environment through work experience and guest lectures.
KPMG in Qatar is one of the largest Audit, Tax and Advisory services firms in the country and supporting education is a primary focus of its corporate citizenship program, locally and globally. On the signing, Country Senior Partner Ahmed Abu-Sharkh said; “It is a great privilege to be able to support young Qataris and Qatar residents from AFG College with the University of Aberdeen, as they carry out their studies and prepare to embark on their careers. At KPMG in Qatar we believe in nurturing great talent and recognize that experience in an international organization not only provides students with insight into their chosen field and how business done, but can also give them a competitive edge when applying for jobs. We have been pleased to offer permanent employment to a number of students, who started with KPMG as interns from Qatari universities in the past, and they have been amongst the brightest and most hard-working graduates we have employed.”
Dr. Sheika Aisha Bint Faleh Al Thani, Chairperson and Founder of the Al Faleh Group said: “At AFG College with the University of Aberdeen, we believe in fostering a learning environment which encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030. Working with KPMG offers many mutual benefits and will allow our students to put theory into practice, whilst gaining valuable exposure to a professional working environment.”
The MOU, which was signed by Dr. Sheika Aisha Bint Faleh Al Thani, Chairperson and Founder of the Al Faleh Group and Ahmed Abu-Sharkh (KPMG), outlines a number of areas for mutual collaboration to support AFG College with the University of Aberdeen in developing students including internships and guest lectures.
