The agreement will facilitate greater coordination between the OLC and Muscat University, allowing cooperation across a range of activities including, but not limited to, training, continuing professional development, joint research, consultancy and student internships.
Under the agreement, Muscat University’s Faculty of Transport and Logistics will develop specialised training courses for employees of OLC, further improving their understanding of the unique logistics environment in Oman while also developing the skills needed to thrive in the international logistics sector.
In addition, Muscat University will commit to developing its academic and international expertise in the field of training and professional development by organising seminars, interactive academic courses and other ongoing development activities of interest to OLC. The agreement between the two parties will also provide a range of opportunities for Muscat University students to experience a practical working environment and develop their skills through work-based training in the company, thereby promoting best practice in the logistics industry.
Professor Yusra said, “Muscat University is delighted to announce this important strategic partnership with OLC, a partnership that will combine our strengths in training and development with OLC’s reputation for excellence in the logistics sector.
“Like OLC, Muscat University is committed to realising the promise of the SOLS 2040 programme, and we will seek to unlock and expand the sultanate’s logistics potential through targeted training and research programmes. By partnering with OLC, Muscat University will simultaneously develop the skills and expertise of students while strengthening our relationships with international organisations, driving research and development with the assistance of international logistics sector experts. We believe that this partnership between Muscat University and OLC will profoundly accelerate logistics sector innovation in Oman, allowing the sultanate to more effectively meet the challenges of the logistics sector, in line with the SOLS 2040 programme.”
Maani stated, “The logistics sector has long played a vital role in the economy, serving as a critical enabler for businesses and also as a key employer of graduates entering the workforce. The fact that the Faculty of Transport and Logistics at Muscat University retains the largest number of undergraduate and postgraduate students of any department clearly shows that Oman is a nation of traders.
“The new partnership will help to ensure that the sultanate continues to build on its reputation for excellence in the logistics sector, fulfilling both the aims of the SOLS 2040 initiative and the aspirations of the Omani people.”
