The Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development participated in a panel discussion held at the Georgetown University here and explored issues facing the oil and gas industry.
The panel discussion that was held on Wednesday formed part of the Georgetown Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) 4th module at Georgetown University in Doha.
GEMBA offers its candidates the opportunity to learn through engagement, communication and networking with colleagues and organisations in progressive and developing economies.
At a particular point of the Doha residency, the candidates examined the management of human and social capital and the challenges of doing business in the MENA region.
“Georgetown works closely with industry experts and thought leaders to form partnerships that are educational for our students and contribute towards growing Qatar’s knowledge economy,” said Georgetown University in Qatar’s Dean Ahmad Dallal.
He said, “We are fortunate to have experts like Howard Bevan from the Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development to share their expertise on doing business in the Middle East with students from the Georgetown Global Executive MBA programme.”
This year GEMBA introduced a roundtable discussion engaging well-known experts from various oil and gas companies based in Doha, including Howard Bevan, secretary to the Board of Trustees and Energy Adviser, The Al-Attiyah Foundation. Bevan who shared his interpretation on the issues facing the industry said “it is always a privilege to work and collaborate with the local universities in Qatar, to hear the views of the visiting students and to share insights from Al-Attiyah Foundation.”
The panelists explored a series of headline grabbing issues associated with the oil and gas business, such as: perspectives on shifts in supply and increased competition from shale gas and other sources, volatility in oil and gas prices and their effects on industry fundamentals in Qatar and the Gulf, medium-term outlook for oil and gas investment in the region and effects of new global trading patterns on the oil and gas market.
