Commenting on the program, Chief Human Capital Officer, Khaled Al Qubaisi, said: “The initiative reinforces Mubadala’s commitment to supporting and nurturing the development of local talent in order to accelerate the UAE’s journey to global competitiveness and sustainability. At the end of the day, the success of any organization is due to its people.”
