Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar and Maersk Oil Qatar recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will see the establishment of an alliance between both institutions for the mutual transfer of knowledge.

Signed by Ilker Baybars, dean of Carnegie Mellon Qatar, and Sheikh Faisal bin Fahad Al Thani, deputy managing director of Maersk Oil Qatar, the MoU seeks to complement the human development pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030.

This objective will be achieved through the delivery of executive education in the fields of business management systems, information security, and public policy via conferences, seminars and specialized workshops.

The partnership will also strengthen the university’s commitment to educating students to solve challenges faced by real-world companies and organizations. Students gain both theoretical knowledge and practical experience in biological sciences, business administration, computer science and information systems as they complete their undergraduate degrees at Carnegie Mellon Qatar.
