The Family Office sponsors 100 Bahrainis for online digital courses

MANAMA: With the support of the Economic Development Board, global investment manager The Family Office is sponsoring 100 Bahrainis to attend online programmes around digital transformation hosted by two leading universities, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Columbia University as part of the MIT-Columbia Digital Transformation Online Education Programme.

As part of its role of attracting FDI into Bahrain, which creates high-quality jobs for Bahrainis, the EDB works closely with organisations like The Family Office who offer opportunities to participate in initiatives like the Digital Transformation Online Education Programme.

This allows for the further diversification of the talent pool and ensures that Bahrainis are the employees of choice for companies establishing operations in the kingdom.

The programmes being offered by MIT and Columbia University will provide fast and achievable alternatives to traditional education which can have an immediate positive economic impact through business, allowing motivated youth and up-and-coming business leaders to play a role in the digital transformation of Bahrain and the region.

“As the future is digital, we are proud to leave a mark by contributing to Bahrain’s rise as a regional digital hub. In partnership with the EDB, we look forward to strengthening the abilities of the Bahraini workforce so that they become a critical part of this digital transformation,” said The Family Office founder and chief executive Abdulmohsin Al Omran.

The three courses offered will run for two to three months and are titled Digital Transformation: Platform Strategies for Success (MIT), Digital Strategies for Business: Leading the Next Generation Enterprise (Columbia), and Digital Marketing: Customer Engagement, Social Media, Planning and Analytics (Columbia).

Applicants to the programme must be Bahraini nationals, between the ages of 25 and 40.

Interested individuals will be able to apply to the programme through the EDB’s website, at the following link: www.bahrainedb.com/digital-transformation.

The deadline to submit applications is June 4.
