Vodafone Qatar has concluded a hybrid Internship Programme and Telecoms Mini-MBA 2020 as part of its continued commitment to developing the talents of Qatari youth. 
The programmes are designed to equip Qatari students and graduates with essential knowledge and skills to help them build their careers in the telecommunications sector. 
The hybrid internship programme gave student interns at Vodafone Qatar the flexibility to work on projects alongside teams in an office setting and remotely, giving them a valuable opportunity to build a professional network while learning the in-demand skills that enhance their future employment prospects.
In parallel, Vodafone Qatar ran the fast-tracked Telecoms Mini-MBA exclusively for its Qatari employees. The accelerated business programme delivered over 35 hours of tuition focused on developing their in-depth knowledge in all aspects of the global telecommunications business, covering technology, leadership, and management. Exposing the young professionals to different business areas strengthened their foundation in current business theories and practices, which will help them qualify for positions with greater responsibility.
Khames Mohamed al-Naimi, chief human resources officer, Vodafone Qatar, said: “We believe in preparing young talents who aim to build their careers in telecommunications to become productive contributors to the growth of the industry by helping them learn the business language and understand the systems of thinking.”
Intern Nojoud Ali al-Dahri said working for Vodafone Qatar has broadened his knowledge of the telecommunications sector. Mohamed Saif al-Naimi, another intern, said he is extremely satisfied with the results. 
Najlaa Mubarak al-Kuwari, Vodafone Qatar Cyber Security Risk and Compliance Analyst who took the Mini MBA, said the programme has been very rewarding, both personally and professionally. 
Sheikh Faisal Hamad al-Thani, Vodafone Qatar senior specialist corporate social responsibility who also took the Mini MBA, said: “The fact that I did not have to step outside the organisation to complete this accelerated business programme has been very convenient for me. The programme has certainly flourished my telecoms knowledge and equipped me to better understand the field that I’m in and thrive for continuous professional advancement.”
Vodafone Qatar is committed to Qatarisation and its initiatives to recruit and develop Qatari nationals include the two-year Vodafone Discover Graduate Programme and a Sponsorship Programme, which are open to Qatari students studying towards a diploma or a bachelor’s degree. Graduates can register their CV at to be considered for future opportunities.
