The College of Business and Texas A&M are collaborating on a project to offer a tourism course.

The department of tourism and hospitality, College of Business Administration, Umm Al-Qura University and the department of recreation, parks and tourism sciences at Texas A&M are partnering to develop academic offerings that fall in line with the kingdom's Vision 2030.

As part of that effort, the UQU president has called for continuous improvements to the quality and offerings of the education provided to students of the College of Business Administration (BA). The college consistently strives to meet the accreditation standards of international commissions like AACSB and EFMD.

A team of academics will lead the first tourism course, which will be offered during the current academic semester. Working together on the course will be Dean Sultan Al-Bugami; College Vice Dean for Educational Affairs Ahmed Al-Qarni; lecturer Sultan Al-Harbi, who is presently on scholarship at Texas University; and Head of the Tourism and Hospitality Department in the College Yosri Nabil. The team has communicated with the American university of advanced ranking in tourism sciences to formulate the lecturer materials.

The course will strive to teach students of both colleges with a flavor from both the kingdom and the U.S. to help them best comprehend cultures and principals of the Saudi and American societies and to paint a vivid image of the Saudi region.
