A new achievement was added to the extensive record of accomplishments of Princess Sumaya University for Technology and its students when Hiba Shabrouq, a PSUT graduate in Communications Engineering and holder of a Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship, was awarded a Stevie Award for Women in Business. Eng. Shabrouq competed against a field of 1500 applicants across all categories of the award. Eng. Shabrouq entered the category for general employee in a worldwide field of companies in the Communications sector. She took the prize and qualified to compete for the top three awards, gold, silver and bronze, which will be announced and presented in New York, USA, on the 16th of November. All of the qualifiers for the top three prizes were given an award, with the order of positions yet to be revealed.

The Stevie Awards are considered among the most prestigious in the world of international business. The Awards were established in 2002 to recognize the best practices, accomplishments, services, products, companies, entrepreneurs, professionals and business innovators, as well as to honor businesswomen, female executives, entrepreneurs, and employees, and to create worldwide recognition and appreciation for their achievements.

The President of PSUT, Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai, expressed his pleasure and pride in the University’s outstanding students and graduates. Their accomplishments are testament to the fertile academic environment the University gives its students, the high competency levels of the teaching staff, the effective plan of work, and the wise and dedicated guidance afforded to the University by HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, Chair of the Board of Trustees. Without a doubt, these factors combine to lead to the preparation of distinguished graduates who are fully prepared to bring their innovative ideas to the labor market.

It is worth noting that Eng. Hiba Shabrouq participated, alongside 31 other women from 22 countries, in the Women Ambassadors Forum, where she was the sole Jordanian representative. The participants represented a wide range of sectors, including the law, finance, the economy, information technology, international relations, teaching, political science, medicine, nursing, music, business management, and engineering. Last year, Eng. Hiba also took part in a gathering for Women in Technology, which was held in the USA. She was also one of five Jordanian young women who took first place in the largest gathering of Women in Technology, which lead to them being able to obtain financing for their project, named ‘Azwa’, which aimed at helping young orphaned girls in Jordan.
