Invitation to QS Excellence Roundtable – 13th May 2020

In these times of uncertainty and chaos, it is important that we focus on development and excellence of our universities. QS has already organised weekly roundtables inviting leaders from universities in the Arab region to come together and share best practises and ideas on various topics which have affected the world at large during this global pandemic.

The roundtables are titled under an amazing new initiative called “Arab Rectors Excellence Circle” and organised by QS and supported by Arab Association of Universities (AARU). QS will have a new set of panelists every week on this live event talking about issues that matter and are important in the current times.
