Organised by QU’s Career Services Centre (CSC), the event was attended by university officials and staff led by its president Dr Hassan al-Derham, and company representatives.

Dr al-Derham thanked employers for their pivotal role in supporting QU’s objectives, strategic plan and Qatar National Vision 2030 towards a knowledge-based economy.

“QU is committed to promoting national identity among students and to shaping national competencies by equipping them with high-quality education,” he said. “We are always pleased to receive a feedback about our qualified graduates.”

The QU president also highlighted their achievements in international and regional rankings, saying that the university has been ranked number one in the Arab world in the Round University Rankings.
