This is reflected through its various academic programs that meet the needs of the local economy. Over the past years, the University has developed its outcomes. In this regard, it is committed to equip its graduates with the knowledge and skills, such as analytical and critical thinking, that enable them to cope with the labor market’s fluctuations.”

Additionally, the new strategy aims to drive education based on entrepreneurship and innovation, to ensure financial and institutional sustainability, and to advance digital transformation.”

This can be achieved through the continuous collaboration between QU and the various local institutions and sectors, which support QU students during their academic and professional journey.”
