Aurak inks deal with RAK statistics centre

RAS AL KHAIMAH, February 26, 2017

The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (Aurak) has signed a MoU with the Ras Al Khaimah Center of Statistics and Studies to strengthen the cooperation between the two entities within the field of statistical analysis, in terms of the preparation of university publications and training.

Under the MoU, the center will organise training courses for students and provide them with opportunities to actively participate in field surveys and the collection of data.

The MoU provides a platform for mutual benefit, stated Prof Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, Aurak president and Ibrahim Akoum, the executive director of the Center for Statistics and Studies.

The agreement represents the importance of co-operation and the university’s commitment to community service.

It also underlines Aurak’s effort to the development of well-rounded graduates, especially within the School of Business, who are able to successfully gain employment in a highly-competitive labor market.

As stated in the agreement, the Center for Statistics and Studies will soon hold a meeting with business majors in order to explain the work carried out by the center and the opportunities available in terms of training and recruitment.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Prof Al Alkim stressed the significance of the tieup, stating: "For us, this agreement is particularly important, as it creates another training platform for our students, enabling them to apply the knowledge gained at the university to a real-life environment."

"Thus, they acquire work experience which will be of their advantage when it comes to seeking employment," he noted.

"Furthermore, statistics are playing an increasingly important role in this age where we see technological advancement accelerating at an astonishing rate. We are always seeking ways in which we can collaborate with industry leaders so that we can benefit our students, the university, and the community as a whole," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
