Ooredoo, Qatar’s leading telecommunications company, reaffirmed its commitment to knowledge sharing and community engagement by hosting students from Georgetown University’s International Executive Master of Professional Studies in Emergency & Disaster Management.  

The students had the unique opportunity to visit Ooredoo’s Service Operations Centre (SOC) and witness the practical implementation of disaster recovery protocols.

During their visit to Ooredoo’s SOC, students had the exclusive chance to witness the real-world application of the knowledge they had acquired in the classroom. 

Gunther Ottendorfer, Ooredoo’s Chief Technology and Infrastructure Officer, along with the SOC management, provided valuable insights and guidance during the visit. They explained the intricacies of disaster recovery protocols.

Sabah Rabiah Al Kuwari, Director PR at Ooredoo Qatar, said: “At Ooredoo, we believe in the power of practical learning and hands-on experiences. This visit allowed students to see how the theories they study in the classroom translate into real-world applications.

“We’re proud to contribute to the development of the next generation of emergency and disaster management leaders who’ll play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and resilience of our communities, both locally and globally.”

Georgetown University’s International Executive Master of Professional Studies in Emergency & Disaster Management programme emphasises communication, trust-building, and collaboration — critical components of effective emergency and disaster management.

By facilitating interactions between students and experienced professionals in the field, the programme aims to create a network of leaders capable of addressing and mitigating complex challenges on a global scale.
