Hello and welcome to this blog, which has been established to explore the educational and business history of Fahad Al Rajaan.
In terms of education, the blog will focus particularly on Victoria College in Alexandria and American University in Washington DC, both attended by Fahad Al-Rajaan in preparation for what was soon to become a high flying career in finance. A variety of posts will discuss the importance of education generally as well as taking a closer look at some of the courses, programs, facilities and extra-curricular activities on offer at these establishments.
You will be able to read a history of these educational institutions, both of which boast large numbers of notable alumni. A series of profiles will feature some of these alumni and discuss the work they have gone on to do upon completion of their education. These include members of various royal families, prominent names in business and government and famous names from the artistic community such as the actor Omar Sharif.
In terms of Fahad Al Rajaan’s business history, the focus is on his work as Director General of Kuwait’s Public Institute for Social Security (PIFSS) and as Chairman of the Ahli United Bank.
