A number of students living in property in UAE have taken part in a training programme that was described as successful.
In total, 22 high school and university pupils from across the state completed the first round of a summer scheme organised by Dubai Bank.
Within the banking industry, the interns gained on-the-job experience of various areas such as IT systems, data security, business writing, communications and customer service.
Asim Ahmed Al Ali, head of human resources at the bank behind the scheme, said he was very impressed with the students.
"They were able to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the banking industry and its role in the UAE's economic development," he stated.
"In addition, they have achieved basic business skills in areas such as leadership, customer engagement, time management and others."
Earlier this month, a 30-year-old mother of two girls who lives in property in Dubai won AED one million from the bank.
Ayesha Reema asserted she would use the money to finance her daughters' higher educations.
