With Saudi Vision 2030 and the national transformation plans motivating job localization and effective partnerships between the university community and the private sector, Umm Al-Qura University was keen to carry out these directions in its strategic plans. It worked with the Americana Group to launch the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's first mutual education program, which gives youth a chance to learn while working. The two parties seek to produce distinguished national graduates for the labor market who are equipped with skills, information, and capabilities according to the actual needs of employers.
The program was launched by the Institute of Consulting Research and Studies at Umm Al-Qura University and the training and qualification centers at the Americana Group in the Middle East and North Africa.
