Eduguide - Al-Daleel Al Talemi, Metropolia's new partner in Saudi Arabia

Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences' School of ICT and Eduguide for Training and Consulting (Al-Daleel Al Talemi) have recently signed an agreement to collaborate in offering the market of Saudi Arabia practical short-term training programs primarily in the area of Information and Communication Technology. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Mr. Mohammed Al-Zahrani, CEO of Eduguide الدليل التعليمي and Dr. Antti Piironen, Director of Helsinki Metropolia UAS's School of ICT.

Mr. Mohammed Al-Zahrani says that this partnership is a strategic choice that will contribute positively to transfer Helsinki Metropolia UAS's ICT experience to the Saudi market for the development of human resources and the rehabilitation of youth competencies to meet the challenges of the knowledge age.

"During the discussions back in Riyadh in May 2013, Mr. Al-Zahrani mentioned that very little efforts have been made to promote the Finnish excellence in apparently diverse fields and sectors, which all emerge from the strong foundation of the Finnish education system. This recently started collaboration will among other initiatives promote Metropolia's expertise and best practices in ICT education and training in Saudi Arabia. Metropolia offering will cover a series of continuous professional development workshops and programs, targeting ICT professionals, academics and various service organizations", says Adil Idrissi Akhelij, Metropolia's Marketing Manager for Gulf Region.
