My Professional Profile
My name is Abdulla Faisal AlSabah, graduated with Masters in Business and Administration (MBA) from Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST) in 2010. I also hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Finance Concentration from the American University of Kuwait. Following my Bachelor’s degree in 2008, I joined the corporate finance department of KIPCO Asset Management Company where I have worked closely on the valuation of various listed and non-listed Companies, and also has in depth knowledge of quantitative and qualitative analysis of companies. In 2010 I joined Kuwait Stock Exchange (“KSE”) as an Assistant Financial Analyst, General Manager’s office where I was responsible for various duties including but not limited to conducting due diligence on Kuwait Stock Exchange new index ( Kuwait 15 index ), preparing Quarterly reports on Kuwait Stock Exchange for Kuwait Capital Market Authority (CMA).
During my work I continued enhancing my skills and knowledge through attending various courses and seminars including Stockholm Exchange Seminar, CFA Level I training program (six months course), Financial Statement Analysis, 2009 Euro-money Conference, Valuation in the Middle East and Business Financial Modelling in Excel. One of my recent achievements was being a core team member of an active team that was responsible for establishing a new index (Kuwait 15) for the Kuwait Stock Exchange.
I believe that working and collaborating with people from different backgrounds allows a blending of diverse ideas and helps everyone involved to achieve their highest potential. I would like to conduct myself in that manner around my prospective colleagues at university, and given my upbringing and background, I feel that the university’s socially and culturally diverse environment is a perfect fit and one that I would be comfortable with.
I believe studying with the university would provide me with an exposure to different real-world financial cases and situations, enhance my research capabilities and help me to expand my networked which will have a great impact on my future career.
I look forward to succeed in a professional organization by placing my knowledge and my skills into use in order to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of your organization through my experience and commitment.
