As part of an effort to build students who will be ripped for the work environment, Standard Chartered Bank is on a mission to mentor some university students. The event dubbed ‘Stand Out’ saw about 300 students on the KNUST counselled on what to do during their tertiary education to fit into the cooperate world.
Senior Executives of the bank took the students through the program. The aim of the program was to allow the Senior Executives of the bank share their stories of how they stood out to higher heights in the banking sector and the dynamics students aiming to enter the sector must know.
They also discussed issues on a career path after graduation, career challenges and how to balance work and family. The Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Mansa Nettey, encouraged the students to read broadly and have an open mind towards their education and career.
She entreated them not to stick to only with what they are thought in the lecture hall but broaden then horizon as they will be competing globally if they graduate. Meanwhile, Standard Chartered Bank took the opportunity to announce it has moved its branch from the commercial area to the Jubilee Mall in the KNUST.
The branch has been made more client friendly and digitally apt to bring convenience to customers. The ultra-modern smart branch, combines both traditional and digital banking services, offering a full suite of banking products, including wealth and investment management as well as insurance solutions.
