Vodafone inaugurated its new booth at Qatar University located in the College of Business and Economics, Building H08, female campus. The booth is a new platform that falls in line with the first-year anniversary of the Memorandum of Understanding that Vodafone and Qatar University signed in 2015.

Aimed at offering a wide range of products and services to students, Vodafone’s booth also serves to engage with students providing them with career advice, entertainment and a lot more. Mohamed Al Sadah, Chief Operating Officer at Vodafone Qatar said: “The idea of a booth at the prestigious Qatar University stems from the concept that students know what they want, and therefore empowering them to reach their potential and achieve the extraordinary was the important thing to do. Vodafone’s new booth is a pleasant area for students to enjoy their free time between classes and on their breaks.”

Qatar University’s Administration and Economics Faculty Dean Dr. Nitham Hindi said, “Vodafone’s booth will serve as a platform for the exchange of information and best practices that will benefit our students and comes as part of the vital academic role that the faculty of Administration and Economics play at Qatar University.” Vodafone is working with the students directly to help them enjoy their student life on campus, and help them develop their career paths off campus in workshops and trainings provided by professionals. Students will also have the benefit to enjoy Vodafone services without having to go to the company’s retail stores.

Additionally, Vodafone is planning entertainment and engagement activities led and produced by the students themselves. In 2015, Vodafone and Qatar University signed a MoU to collaborate in education and research areas, and mutual scientists and researchers exchanges for various instructional and training initiatives in business, finance and information technology areas. Both institutions organized a series of joint conferences, seminars and workshops to that effect.

Vodafone has already assigned students to run the Vodafone Falla Club on campus where students help spearhead programmes and initiatives to help each other achieve the extraordinary.
