Executive Dean’s Message

Welcome to the oldest private university in Qatar! Our university was established in the year 2000 by H.E. Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim Al Thani whose vision and legacy of passion for education has positively impacted and successfully transformed the lives of many young individuals.

For more than 20 years we have been a major contributor to professional education in the State of Qatar and our academic and professional development programmes are aimed at advancing Qatar’s national development goals. We have always aspired to be a university of excellence, known for the quality of its programmes, learning, and societal impact.

We offer holistic education in a multicultural family-like environment, in which students are not just numbers. With us they can find their purpose, become more resilient, and grow into successful professionals and entrepreneurs who can positively impact the lives of others. Through our internationally and UK-accredited undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in international business, hospitality, tourism management we help students to become successful leaders in the constantly changing global arena.

Our university is very well situated to provide students with great opportunities for learning, and our location in the heart of Doha is vital to the institution’s identity and success as a school. We work very closely with local and international business and governmental organisations, which enable our graduates to be well-placed for their future careers and to be consistently sought after by future employers.

A degree from our university will open doors to an exciting future with varied career prospects and options. We are confident that our students are well equipped to start working in the real world immediately after graduation and become successful in different industries.
Join us today, experience high-quality university education and become one of our success stories!

Best wishes.
