Our strategic approach is in support of the wider institutional international strategy.
The School of Management, in partnership with Ahlia University (Bahrain) and Qatar University (Qatar), has launched an “Entrepreneurs across Borders” initiative. The initiative aims to integrate the theory and practice of transacting business in emerging markets.
Both tours include a series of workshops, and visits to multinational organisations, social enterprises, startup/incubators, cultural visits, guest talks, and social activities with partner institution students and staff.
