Five graduate students from Qatar University College of Business and Economics (QU-CBE) recently attended the International Master’s Summer School for Sustainability in Business held at University of Bradford Triple Crown School of Management.

The summer school provided the students with an exciting opportunity to actively engage with experts in business sustainability and to meet their peers and industry guest speakers from around the world. They also participated in seminars, practical workshops, simulation games, and industrial visits.

CBE Associate Professor of Information Systems Dr Ramzi El-Haddadeh said: “Qatar University in general and the College of Business and Economics in particular, does really value the scholarships offered by the Triple Crown School of Management to our carefully selected graduate students. This summer school offered our students unique settings that enrich their learning journey and experience in global business sustainability at one of the internationally leading management schools. We are sure this is the first of many future collaborations.”

University of Bradford Faculty of Management and Law Dean Prof Zahir Irani said: “The International Master’s Summer School for Sustainability in Business offers graduate students a unique opportunity to enrich their experience and knowledge of contemporary issues in global business sustainability. Simultaneously, it is offering us, as a school, an opportunity to build strong foundations with Qatar University. There is much synergy between our institutions.”

Student Aseel Bardawil (Masters in Marketing) said: “My experience at University of Bradford has been incredible. There were practical and theoretical exercises taking place throughout our time. I learned a lot more about business sustainability and ethical leadership. This has triggered my thoughts on how circular economies should be applied throughout the world and their impact on the future. I am quite pleased to have been given this opportunity and I do strongly encourage other graduate students at QU to take the initiative and actively seek similar events and activities.”
