Jeddah's University of Business and Technology (UBT) has signed a memorandum of understanding with Avaya to explore education initiatives in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The MoU was signed by HE Professor Osama A Jannadi, Rector of UBT and Fadi Hani, vice president, Avaya, Middle East, Africa and Turkey; and at the Gulf Education Conference & Exhibition which took place on the UBT campus in Jeddah.

Avaya and UBT will share knowledge and expertise to form cooperation in the fields of higher education, corporate education and community service. The MoU covers internship and co-operative education programs, and events, seminars and workshops, as well as exchange of information.

"This strategic initiative is further demonstration of Avaya's commitment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and to its knowledge development. Avaya is also a strong supporter of education initiatives, having invested in our own Avaya Sales Academy program, to create our corporate leaders of the future. Avaya is proud to have the opportunity to play our part in Saudi Arabia's development, and look forward to working closely with the University of Business and Technology to explore areas of mutual cooperation," said Fadi Hani.

"Avaya's knowledge and expertise in delivering superior communications experiences and cloud-based solutions can play an important role in enhancing the educational experience. Education and digital transformation are key to achieving Saudi Vision 2030, so it is vital that today's students are equipped with the right skills to prepare them for the digital economy," commented H.E. Professor Osama A Jannadi.
