Entrepreneurship in Qatar

Tepper School of Science and Technology has started a training course in Qatar for entrepreneurs. The program aims to convert research and education into business success.

The Executive Entrepreneurship Certificate Program is run by Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business and its Donald H. Jones Center for Entrepreneurship. The center, recognized as one of the best in the world, has taught thousands of people to create new businesses, including the founder of iGate Corporation, a global IT company with nearly $400 million market capitalization. For the first time, the program is available to executives in the Middle East.

“Entrepreneurial spirit and know-how are essential for building a dynamic knowledge economy,” said Eulian Roberts, QSTP’s chief executive. “We have identified one of the best entrepreneurship programs from around the world to establish its activities in Doha. Carnegie Mellon’s course provides exactly the right set of skills and will be tailored to the unique Middle Eastern business environment. We warmly encourage individuals and executives in Qatar and around the region to come and share the passion of creating new technology business.”
