Al-Owaish further stated: “The bank offers participation opportunities for university students and recent graduates who are looking for high-level training in data analysis and programming, along with high school students aged 16 and older. Additionally, experienced data analysts and even members of the general public with an interest in data science are welcome to participate.”

She continued: “In alignment with Kuwait’s 2035 vision to cultivate creative human capital, and following the bank’s commitment to positioning itself as a bank of the future, Gulf Bank is dedicated to leveraging all its resources to foster a data-driven culture in society. We aim to encourage young individuals to enhance their data science capabilities, thus meeting Kuwait’s future requirements.”

Al-Owaish pointed out that Gulf Bank, a leader in data and digital services in Kuwait, is committed to creating ideal opportunities that strengthen the local technology community.
