Qatar Foundation ties up with Total
Doha, September 28, 2008
French oil giant Total has committed to collaborate with Qatar Foundation's Education City for executive training and development in Qatar and the Middle East.
Total will identify leading French and European universities offering highly ranked post-graduate executive degrees and training programmes that can be implemented at Qatar Foundation’s Education City.
Education City will be the regional hub of Total for executive education and training in the Middle East.
The educational areas being targeted mirror the ambitions of Qatar Foundation in building a knowledge-based economy, and cover a broad range of disciplines, including Finance, Management, Science and Technology, Engineering and Culture.
Selected institutions will be encouraged to join North American Universities already in Education City and so enhance the campus’ global coverage and enrich the academic and cultural experience enjoyed by EC students.
The deal, sealed with a memorandum of understanding (MoU), was welcomed by Dr Mohammed Fathy Saoud, President of Qatar Foundation, who said, “This important initiative demonstrates our commitment to work with Qatar’s partners in Industry to build a sustainable future for Qatar’s economy, built on a rich pool of highly trained talent.”
'We highly value the confidence given to us by Qatar Foundation not only in the field of industrial development and research, but also in bringing our experience of talent development by highly-ranked educational institutions,” said the president of Total E&P Middle East, Ladislas Paszkiewicz.-TradeArabia News Service
