The Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) and King Faisal University (KFU) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to facilitate collaboration in a wide range of fields, including student recruiting, training, research, academics and culture.
KFU President Dr Mohammed bin Abdulaziz Al-Ohali and DGDA Group CEO Jerry Inzerillo signed the deal, with Al-Ohali expressing delight that KFU undergraduates will be trained at DGDA, as this will help them enhance their knowledge and skillsets and expand their learning journey with practical experience.
The MoU will also aid in the two parties’ collaboration by allowing them to participate in career fairs and forums, exchange visits, events, collaborative projects and coordinated volunteer programmes, as well as events customised exclusively for KFU students.

The DGDA and its range of projects are the ideal place for KFU undergraduates to gain the kind of experience that will qualify them to compete in the job market
Inzerillo explained: “This MoU is important to the exchange of knowledge, particularly when it comes to academic studies and statistics that help the two sides develop relevant research. The DGDA and its range of projects are the ideal place for KFU undergraduates to gain the kind of experience that will qualify them to compete in the job market and develop their professional capabilities.
Likewise, as part of our human development efforts, the DGDA is keen on making postgraduate studies available to staff members.”
The two organisations will also look into collaborating to provide KFU students with training opportunities at DGDA, where they will learn from experienced professionals and strengthen their skills. In exchange, KFU plans to offer executive learning and postgraduate education programmes to DGDA employees.
