With the 2022 FIFA World Cup looming on the horizon; but hosting the world’s largest football tournament in just over 4 short years is only part and parcel of Qatar’s vision towards a future of sustained economic development across sectors unrelated to oil and gas. With this economic diversification in mind, Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy developed the Josoor Institute.
A centre of excellence created with the purpose of building the capabilities of the sports and events industries in Qatar and the MENA region through education, training, professional certification, consultancy, and research, the Josoor Institute is tool towards investing in and achieving the Qatar National Vision 2030.
Through the introduction and development of new, sustainable business sectors and the support for education and training of the Qatari people to further develop their skills and talent, the Josoor Institute aims to leave a legacy that will bolster Qatar’s social and economic development while enriching the lives of its people.
What has the Josoor Institute been up to?
So far this year the Josoor Institute has offered a number of short-term and long-term programs aimed at creating a talent pool in the region capable of delivering the 2022 FIFA World Cup and other major events, and build a legacy for the region. Here are just a few of them!
Certificate & Diploma Programs (1-year)
Training & Development Programs
The programs offered at Josoor Institute are available to all those embarking on or wishing to pursue a career in football and sports management and major events management. One recent example of the far-reaching impact of the Josoor Institute’s work is their recent workshop on ‘Carbon Neutrality of Organizations and Events’, delivered alongside the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) and the Gulf Organization for Research & Development (GORD).
