QS Excellence Roundtable – 13th May 2020

QS organized weekly roundtables inviting leaders from universities in the Arab region to come together and share best practices and ideas on various topics that have affected the world at large during this global pandemic. The roundtables were titled “Arab Rectors Excellence Circle” and organized by QS and supported by the Arab Association of Universities (AARU). QS had a set of panelists every week on this live event, who talked about issues that matter and are essential in the current times. The last final roundtable for the season featured Dr. Ahmed Yamani (PSU Rector). Dr. Ashwin Fernandes moderated the session, Regional Director (MENA & South Asia) at QS Quacquarelli Symonds, and over 300 participants attended this session, including some PSU community members.
