The Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Cambridge Information Technology Skills Center is another concrete realization of our ethical, social and professional beliefs in Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org), a major global professional services group.

When we first approached Cambridge University seeking their cooperation in achieving this vital professional project, we were fully aware of the role the project was to play in the development of the Arab societies.

Our main goal has always been to improve training, qualification and education opportunities to build human capacities, and bridge the digital gap separating us from the developed world. Thus, it is our task to provide professional services and contribute to the overall social development in the Arab world.

Since its establishment in 2002, the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh-Cambridge project succeeded in training and qualifying thousands of Arab students from various backgrounds, age groups and academic levels who are now proud holders of International Diploma in IT Skills.

Moreover, the Center provides its services to ministries, institutions, educational centers and universities in Arab countries, many of which offer support, sponsorship and recognition of the Center’s certificate.

I do believe that the future of societies and countries utterly depends on the individuals’ knowledge in the field of information technology and we, in the Arab world, are moving progressively towards achieving this end. However, we must exert greater efforts and keep up with the unprecedented rapid developments in information and communication sectors.

Finally, I’d like to stress my confidence in the training programs offered by Talal Abu-Ghazaleh-Cambridge Information Technology Skills Center in the Arab countries since they are the best approach to build and develop human capabilities and take this sector into a higher level of professionalism.
