Oman Air backs CBFS Youth Entrepreneurship Competition

Posted 2 May 2016 · Add Comment

Oman Air has joined with the Muscat-based College of Banking and Financial Studies (CBFS) to support the ongoing development of entrepreneurship amongst the young people of Oman.

The airline has accepted an invitation from the college to become a strategic partner for the CBFS Youth Entrepreneurship Competition. The competition aims to prepare students for success in an evolving Omani economy by incentivising, contributing and sustaining the success of the winning students. It culminated in a ceremony, which was held under the auspices of His Excellency Hamad Al Amri, Undersecretary of Manpower, on 24th April. 

As a part of its support for the competition, Oman Air provided the winner with return tickets to Dubai. The tickets will enable them to continue their project by visiting a financial firm in Dubai to exchange skills and expertise, and to enhance their knowledge and experience. 

Dr. Khalid bin Abdul Wahab al Balushi, senior manager Government Affairs at Oman Air, said: “We are pleased and proud to be supporting this important initiative, in partnership with the College of Banking and Financial Studies. The continuing success and expansion of Oman’s economy depends on the entrepreneurial flair of today’s students, who will go on to become the business leaders of tomorrow. 

“That is why the CBFS Youth Entrepreneurship Competition is so important. The business world is, of course, highly competitive and this project encourages students to shine in their chosen fields. Furthermore, the winner now has the opportunity to travel and to further develop their skills and knowledge. It has been a pleasure to provide them with their flights to Dubai, courtesy of Oman Air.”
