The first pillar is adding the university to our list of business customers and offering support, to strengthen its business through providing a wide range of telecom services. As for the second pillar, we provide developmental services to help the university fulfill its mission of improving the quality of education offered to young students, which falls in line with our social corporate responsibility plan, stemming from Orange Jordan's five-year strategic strategy Essentials 2020, which places customer service and the community across different segments, especially education and youth entrepreneurship, at its core.”


 

From his side, President of Al-Balqa’ Applied University, Dr. Abdullah Srour Al-Zoubi praised Orange Jordan, which is an international operator with a local spirit that intrinsically cares about forming a real bond with the community, one that feels increasingly more friendly and understanding of the needs of individual members of society, for contributing to the growth of economy and wellbeing of Jordanians and to bridge digital divides, as Orange Jordan is the strongest provider of fast internet in the Kingdom. This comes in line with the directives of His Majesty King Abdullah II to create employment opportunities for Jordanians. Al-Balqa’ Applied University works on implementing the royal vision and the national strategy for the development of human resources for the community and developing its education plans for graduate students, who are scientifically and technically qualified to enable them to compete and join the labor market locally and regionally.
