The Kingdom’s innovator and leading company in Fintech and electronic financial transactions service, BENEFIT, officially kicked off its Annual FinTech Internship Programme ‘Masar’. The programme, which is in its first edition, is being held in collaboration with the Supreme Council for Women (SCW).
This year, 11 university students and recent graduates are enrolled in the programme segmented into three learning paths including Data services, Payment services and Corporate Support.
Head of Human Resources and Administration, Salah Al Awadhi, said: “We are pleased to cooperate with the SCW to enable the participating students to receive hands-on experience in a multi-vertical financial ecosystem.
The tailored programme will conclude with a final project in which students are challenged to submit their most unique concept in order to win a trophy for the ‘Best innovative idea in FinTech’.
The pitched innovative idea must streamline existing processes, simplify and lower costs of operations, generate a new income line for the company and add value to society.”
Masar provides Bahraini university students and recent graduates an opportunity to shadow industry experts, acquire foundational skills and practical knowledge, and collaborate to develop innovative FinTech solutions, through their introduction to the financial technology ecosystem.
