Dubai Islamic Bank Launches Second Qiyadee Program

Dubai, May 9, 2011: Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) announced today the launch of

its second Qiyadee programme to develop a core group of employees to assume

managerial positions within the organisation. The selected Emiratis, from both inside

and outside the bank, will now embark on a 36 month-long training programme to

develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become the future leaders of DIB.

DIB’s second Qiyadee programme has been developed in partnership with Zayed

University and was officially launched at a ceremony attended by Dubai Islamic Bank

CEO Mr. Abdullah A Hamli, Dr. Sulaiman Al Jassim, Vice President of Zayed University

and the bank’s senior management, including, Dr. Adnan Chilwan, Deputy CEO – Chief

of Consumer and Wholesale Banking, Mohamed Abdullah Al Nahdi, Deputy CEO –

COO, and Obaid Khalifa AL Shamsi, Chief of Human Resources.

Introduced in 2006, the Qiyadee programme consists of theoretical and practical

courses, each designed by experts in the fields of Islamic banking, finance and

management. Students are trained in a range of core business and support functions,

preparing them to take managerial positions within the field of retail banking, corporate

banking, wealth management, central operations information technology and risk


Abdullah Al Hamli, CEO of DIB, said: “The Qiyadee programme is central to DIB’s long-

term strategy for acquiring and developing the bank’s future leadership. We consider

developing the talents and skills of UAE nationals to be one of our most important

priorities, and programmes such as this will provide the platform for the continued


growth of DIB.”

Dr. Sulaiman Al Jassim, Vice President of Zayed University, said: “Zayed University

values its relationship with Dubai Islamic Bank, one of the leading economic and

financial institutions locally and internationally. Its status as the first Islamic bank in

the world underlines its distinguished place in the banking sector. Through its training

programmes, the bank is committed to the philosophy of continuous education which is

vital in order to keep pace with the continuous technical advances in the world.”

The Qiyadee programme is a key component of DIB’s long-term strategy to meet its

ambitious Emiratisation target. The bank has already achieved 100% Emiratisation

at branch manager level and, across the organisation, Emiratisation stands at an

impressive 46%, an increase of 5% in 2010.
