Qatar university to offer new energy program
Doha, November 17, 2013
Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science, and Community Development (QF), will launch its new Executive Master in Energy and Resources program next January.
The program is specially designed to create an in-depth understanding of the role of energy and resources in modern life – including their influence upon global politics, the balance between satisfying our energy needs and protecting our natural environment, and their capacity to drive international markets, said a statement.
The program will integrate the disciplines of geopolitics, public policy, technology, finance, management and strategy, and will prepare participants to conduct strategic analysis, reach effective decisions and manage their operations with a global understanding of E&R issues, it said.
HBKU is offering the interdisciplinary program in partnership with Georgetown University, Texas A&M University and HEC Paris, each of which will provide diverse but complementary perspectives on this vitally important area.
Graduates will receive an Executive Master’s degree from HBKU, and will be eligible to receive certificates of completion from HBKU’s partner universities: Georgetown University, HEC Paris, and Texas A&M University, in accordance with the requirements of each of the partner universities.
Sheikh Abdulla bin Ali Al-Thani, president of HBKU, said: “Hamad bin Khalifa University was established as a centre of academic excellence and to lead the evolution in Qatar of a knowledge-based society. This program will prepare leaders across many sectors who will build our shared future. It will serve our country, as well as the organizations and individuals who participate.” - TradeArabia News Service
