HALBAN Under the patronage of H.E. Eng. Salim Mohammed Al Naimi, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Transport and Communication, an ‘Evening of Opportunities and Appreciation’, organized by third year students studying Event Management at the Faculty of Business and Economics at the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) will be held at Kempinsiki Hotel Muscat tomorrow evening. Aimen Al Hosni, CEO of Oman Airports Management Company, will be present a keynote speech on the role of airports in realising Oman’s 2040 vision.
Dr. Heba Aziz, Dean of the Daculty of the Business and Economics, comments on this event: “I am proud of the efforts of the students in less than eight weeks they put together an impressive event; the organisation of the event and the event itself demonstrate GUtech’s commitment to bridge the gap between academic education and the business sector.” This year the students have chosen an event to recognise the efforts of the business sector in Oman, both public and private, for the opportunities that they create for the students and which complement their overall learning experience. Over seventy companies in the business sector have received students for their twelve weeks internship program, an industrial project – a consultancy project for the logistics sector, field trips and guest lectures.
The students’ event comes in fulfilment of the requirement for their module in event management where the students are supposed to organise an event with all its components logistics, finance, communication and programmein addition to passing and studying a theoretical component. Students were very successful in securing the sponsorship of two of the main business partners Kempinski the Wave and Petroleum Development Oman (PDO). The two organisations have been extremely supportive to the activities of the department’s academic and students activities.
The Faculty of Business and Economics currently offers two programmes of studies one in Logistics and the other in Business and Tourism. The faculty will launch its MBA programmes in October 2019. The event will take place at the Kempinski Muscat on 1 May, at 7 PM.
