Qatar Stock Exchange and Qatar University Sign a Memorandum of Understanding for Cooperation in the Fields of Education and Training
Jun 17, 2015
In light of keenness to enhance the development of the national economy based on Qatar 2030 National Vision, Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE) and Qatar University signed today a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote future collaborations between the two organizations.
The MoU was signed by Qatar Stock Exchange’s CEO, Rashid Bin Ali Al-Mansoori, and Dr Hasan Al-Dirham, President of Qatar University. The two parties have pledged to work together to collaborate in the fields of education, community development and capacity building.
 
Under the Memorandum, the two sides agreed on enhancing mutual cooperation through involving a number of university students in field training courses at QSE as part of their study plans and practical training requirements.  University graduates also will have the opportunity to complete their internship at QSE. In order to supplement the stock market with the university’s talent pool, the QSE will offer employment opportunities for distinguished students after graduation.
 
Under the Memorandum, the QSE will design a simulation program to train university students on using financial investment tools, carrying out sale/purchase transactions, and designing investment portfolios.  The Memorandum also outlines methods to motivate and reward outstanding university students and distinguished research projects in relation with the financial markets. Under the Memorandum, QSE will facilitate field visits by university students and offer them the opportunity to attend seminars, conferences, and lectures provided by QSE experts.
 
Dr. Hasan Al-Dirham said that Qatar University is very pleased to partner with Qatar Stock Exchange and establish a new step of cooperation with one of the country's leading national institutions and said that due to QSE's vital role in Qatar's economy, Qatar University is keen to boost collaboration with QSE for the benefit students and faculty members. He added that the university is looking to expand this agreement in the coming years to include the launch of an award in scientific research with regard to stock exchanges and financial markets with the aim of building national expertise and human capacity in this vital field.
 
Al-Mansoori welcomed the signing of the agreement as a basis for close cooperation with Qatar University in its capacity as the first national university in the State of Qatar and pointed out that this cooperation is a continuation and culmination of education and awareness efforts undertaken by QSE with Qatar University since long time in terms of students visits and training courses.
This is the fourth MoU signed by Qatar Stock Exchange with a national educational institution, as they signed similar memorandums of understanding with Qatar Finance and Business Academy, College of Islamic Studies at Hamad bin Khalifah University, and Carnegie Mellon University.
