I am delighted that we are working in close partnership with Muscat University and Aston University in developing an innovative suite of programmes in Oman. The postgraduate courses offered by Cranfield draw on our world-class expertise in technology and management and will address the growing need for industry-facing postgraduate skills in Oman.
Cranfield University has an established business expertise in the Gulf Cooperation Council region and wider Middle East, supporting the research and education interests of the region’s utilities, ports, aerospace and logistics businesses. Much of our research and postgraduate educational offer has been delivered in partnership with educational and government institutions in the region. Our new relationship with Muscat University looks to the future with confidence and will deliver postgraduate education across energy futures, logistics, air transport management, entrepreneurship and finance. I hope that you will want to take advantage of the opportunities that you will see in this partnership. We look forward to hearing from you.
