Gulf College Dean, Prof. Taqi Abdulredha Al Abduwani’s full support in the promotion of French language and culture has paved the way for 23 Gulf College students to cross the borders of French subsidiaries in Oman: Mazars Chartered Accountants & Co. LLC having partnership with Makeen Global, and Haya Water (Veolia). They have been supervised by the CLCS Manager and three FFS lecturers.
Mazars’ Managing Partner, Mr. Abbas Al Humaid has ensured the best welcome for GC students through Mr. Jaber Mohammed Al-Lawati, Operations Administrator who facilitated the presentation, discussion, and inquiry between the students and the Mazars-Makeen Team composed of Dr. Jonathan Stearns, Director of Strategy and Management Consultancy; Mr. Zeeshan Ayaz Qureshi, Head of Audit and Assurance; and Mr. Camilo Daza, Chief Business Modeller of Makeen Global. The students have been encouraged to ask questions on audit and assurance, accountancy, financial and business advisory, tax and legal services, and consultancy.
Haya Water Public Affairs Manager, Mr. Salim Awadh Salim Al-Rubkhi has provided a very enriching educational tour to the students as he took them to Haya Wetland which has become the habitat to 300 different species of birds. Along the way, he showed the compost product from green waste used for landscaping and individual gardens. Yellow tankers were seen in a queue as he led the group to the Sewage Treatment Plant. GC students have learnt that there are four treatments done by Haya Water, the third is used for civil works and factories and that the 4th is used for drinking. Haya Water has made parks and golf areas in Muscat evergreen. The students would like to revisit the company as they progress to their specialisation.
