In his speech in the workshop, KTSBT Dean, Dr. George Sammour, confirmed that the school has obtained the international accreditation AACSB as a result of the distinguished quality of its programs at the local and global levels. He added that KTSBT follows the university’s approach to keep pace with the technological developments taking place in the world and the needs of the labor market.

The CEO of MadfooatCom stressed the importance of equipping graduates with skills that help them keep pace with the needs of the rapidly developing labor market.

A university graduate Lamis Ma’aita confirmed that in addition to the theoretical part that graduates receive during their study period, they still need skills and practice and this is exactly what PSUT does.

The attendees valued the holding of such workshops which embody true partnership aimed at bridging the gap between university education and the needs of the labor market.
