Twelve talented students from Qatari Universities have successfully completed an intensive summer internship programme at Aspire Zone Foundation. The students gained a wide variety of experience from working in a number of different departments at the Foundation in a programme that was specially developed for them by the HR department.


The programme offered the students the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities and sessions that were tailored to the subjects they are studying as well as their skills and particular interests. The programme enabled them to spend time in departments including finance and audit, architecture and civil engineering, HR and marketing.

The main purpose of the programme was to give students the opportunity to gain real experience of the workplace, to begin applying what they have learned through their studies in a professional setting, and to give them the right tools to accelerate the early stages of their careers after graduation.

Nasser Ghanim Al-Kuwari, Aspire Zone Foundation HR Director, said: “This internship programme highlights Aspire Zone Foundation’s important role in supporting the development of the Qatari workforce and reflects our commitment to our corporate social responsibility. This summer internship programme is specifically designed to give students on-the-job experience. Such programmes are a key priority for our HR team and are designed to enable students to apply what they have learned through their academic studies with their broader skills in a professional environment. Ultimately, their participation will help to elevate their academic and professional performance.”

Aspire Zone Foundation has previously offered similar opportunities to students to develop new skills. It has organised a number of internship and training programmes designed to help students acquire technical, leadership and personal skills as part of its ongoing efforts to support the development of a qualified, skilled workforce in Qatar.
