HH Sheikha Noora Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa

Metropolia UAS will be hosting H.H. Sheikha Noora Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa from Bahrain for six days, 25.-30.9.2015. Her Highness is seeking for potential co-operation possibilities in the sector of education export with Metropolia UAS.

During the last years, Metropolia UAS has had several contacts related to education export with the public and private sector e.g. in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Oman. Metropolia’s Business Services, MCreO, has a special interest towards Bahrain, as it has a long history of formal education and a strategic location as an active gateway to the GCC countries. It has a well educated and diversified workforce in the region with Bahrainis active in all sectors of the economy. In addition to this, Bahrain can provide customized training solutions through a special program to meet the requirements of organizations. 

Metropolia participated in the business delegation of Minister of Economic Affairs Jan Vapaavuori to Bahrain in May 2015. During this visit, negotiations were made. As a consequence H.H. Sheikha Noora Al Khalifa was invited for a private visit to Metropolia to become acquainted with Metropolia’s Business Services, MCreO. Through her upcoming visit to Finland, H.H. Sheikha Noora Al Khalifa would like to review the potential cooperation opportunities between Finland and Bahrain and highlight on the competitive advantages that Team Finland could have in the GCC Countries, especially in the health care and education sectors.

H.H. Sheikha Noora Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa is a young successful business woman, owner of Educational Institute in Bahrain and 16 other Companies, in diverse sectors across the GCC Countries. She is a National Brand Ambassador of the International non-Olympic University. She is elected as Member of the Board of Directors for "Arab Union" to Protect Intellectual Property Rights. Her Highness holds a Master's Degree in Media & Public Relations and a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design from New York University. She is Ambassador of Peace/Goodwill (International Goodwill Club, Economic & Social Council, UN). Recently, Her Highness obtained an approval for establishing a private university in Bahrain. Her Highness is very much interested in the Finnish Education System and is seeking for mutual cooperation opportunities with Finnish Universities in this regard.
