The Doha headquartered operator supported the contest by hosting a 5G Marketing Challenge in

according to company officials.
At the ceremony, Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari, Chief Consumer Officer at Ooredoo, presented the

Sabah Rabiah Al Kuwari, Director PR at Ooredoo, said: “We’re delighted to have given Qatar
University students the opportunity to showcase their skills and abilities with this 5G Marketing
Challenge, and proud to have celebrated the talents of the marketeers of the future.

On the ongoing cooperation and partnership between the business sector and Qatar University, Dr
Abdullah Fetais, Head of Management and Marketing Department at QU College of Business and
Economics, said: “We always strive to erase the gap between academic study and professional life by
organising competitions and activities such as this Challenge. These competitions are also a great
opportunity for students to develop their skills and knowledge in marketing, as well as give them
real, relevant experience on the ground.”
