The graduates constitute the sixth class of QLC since its establishment as a national platform for leadership development.

"We gather tonight at the new National Museum of Qatar, a masterpiece of art in the service of education. It connects Qatar's past with its future,its rich heritage and traditions are the foundation of its informed vision of development. In a similar way," she noted, "the QLC graduates are guided by the strength of our national heritage and the benefits of education for a promising future."

HE Managing Director and Member Sheikh Dr Abdulla bin Ali Al-Thani remarked, "As we celebrate our graduates' success, we are reminded of the responsibilities they now shoulder, to contribute to our shared societal objectives, to further strengthen our progress toward national development." "Qatar Leadership Centre has provided the graduates with a rigorous academic foundation that encourages critical thinking," he stressed. "I am confident the QLC alumni will use their education and experience to give back to Qatar as we continue to move forward with purpose in the years ahead."

Today, the number of QLC alumni reaches 620 male and female graduates. Hailing from the three National Leadership Programs and the Executive Master's in Leadership, they go on to assume their place within the development of Qatar's vital market sectors, effectively contributing to the national aspiration of establishing a strong knowledge-based economy.
