Alumni dinner in Qatar
University of Bradford alumni based in Qatar and current MSc students met up for a dinner as part of the School of Management's recent study tour to Qatar University.
Held in Katara, the cultural village between West Bay and The Pearl in Doha, the dinner was the perfect opportunity for past students to share their experiences, to talk about career development since studying at Bradford and to network.
Our MSc students received advice on how to take the first steps in launching their careers (and in particular how to build a business, career or profile internationally) from alumni holding senior positions in such prestigious organisations as Qatar National Bank and Qatargas.
The dinner had multiple objectives including:
- Maintaining our close connections with UoB alumni in Qatar, and discussing their ideas for future engagement with the University
- Help MSc students to develop their engagement and networking skills, and gain local knowledge in an international setting to help them understand international entrepreneurship
- Share common experiences and best practice between our past students and those completing the MSc programme
