Doha, Qatar – 30 April 2024: HEC Paris in Qatar, the world’s top-ranked institution for Executive Education by the Financial Times, has joined forces with Qatar Central Bank (QCB) to introduce a bespoke four months Central Banking Essentials Program exclusively for QCB's staff. The program will be held at the state-of-the-art HEC Paris in Qatar campus in Msheireb Downtown Doha, with sessions continuing until July 7, 2024.

Developed in partnership with QCB, the program’s objective is to raise the organization-wide baseline understanding of QCB’s purpose and operations across functional and divisional lines. Twenty-eight employees, from recent graduates with up to two years of working experience, representing various bank divisions, will participate in the program.

HEC Paris in Qatar and QCB have tailored the program to integrate various educational approaches, including peer learning across ten specific modules designed to foster key knowledge-sharing among employees. Academic Director Professor Ai Ting Goh, HEC Paris’s Co-Director of the Major/MS program in economics and finance and a distinguished macroeconomics and banking specialist, will spearhead the program. 

Dr. Pablo Martin de Holan, Dean of HEC Paris in Qatar, highlighted the collaboration’s importance: “Our partnership with QCB underscores our dedication to nurturing Qatar’s local talents and advancing the nation’s transition towards a diversified, knowledge-based economy. With Professor Goh’s leadership and the specialized knowledge of our faculty, which includes industry experts, we are confident participants will gain a broad understanding of the various aspects of Central Banking and its future in the State of Qatar and the GCC.”

Professor Ai Ting Goh will lead the program, supported by a select group of faculty members chosen for their expertise in their respective fields, ensuring a robust learning experience for all involved.
