Carnegie Learning Signs Deal with Qatar-Based Learning Centers

Educate Qatar, a Doha-based company establishing after school in-center and online tutoring programs for Qatari grade school, middle school, and high school students, will license Cognitive Tutor® software and Carnegie Learning® Math textbooks for learning programs throughout Qatar.

“We chose the Carnegie Learning® Math curricula because we believe in the science behind the program”

Educate Qatar specializes in education and training with a portfolio that includes international brands for academic and corporate services and solutions. Educate Qatar is a newly established subsidiary of Al Faisal Holding, an investment firm committed to elevating the quality of life in Qatar. Among the largest companies in Qatar, Al Faisal Holding is active in education initiatives, property development, hospitality, manufacturing, managed services, and trading/distribution.

Since 2006, Carnegie Learning® Math programs have been taught as a supplemental, after school course with high-achieving Qatari high school students enrolled in university courses in Education City in Doha.

“We chose the Carnegie Learning® Math curricula because we believe in the science behind the program,” said Mohamed Dobashi, chief executive officer of Educate Qatar. “Carnegie Learning will bring students in Qatar and the region a new, scientifically proven way to learn mathematics. We looked at a number of products and decided on Carnegie Learning because we want to deliver higher quality math education and we believe Carnegie Learning provides this.”
