Doha, Qatar: At Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q), bonds shared in the classroom often evolve into lasting connections. For Amna Al Thani (GU-Q'11) and Haajerah Khan (GU-Q'10), the Georgetown Network has been instrumental in the success of Strategy Hub, an innovative Qatari consultancy they launched in 2022.

“Strategy Hub aims to harness local expertise to solve Qatar's complex challenges,” says Amna, the company's CEO, who learned about the importance of developing homegrown strategies during her study of international affairs at GU-Q.“Having a nuanced understanding of the context of Qatar and a personal stake in the country's success leads to lasting solutions,” explains the energetic entrepreneur.

Drawing from this local expertise, Amna and Haajerah have assembled a talented team of GU-Q graduates and current students who share their passion for changing the world. Amna emphasised that“As a values-driven, women-led organization, Strategy Hub's purpose is to create a positive impact on both public and private institutions in Qatar. We prioritize growth, learning, and upholding the highest standards of integrity and accountability.”

According to Haajerah, Strategy Hub's Managing Director, who launched the company with her fellow alumna Amna, the synergy within the team comes from a shared understanding of excellence and service.“We all have a very similar way of thinking, a similar way of identifying problems and solutions. It's a dynamic, fun environment. And we all want to help Qatar's development in any way we can.”

“What I love about the Georgetown degree is that it prepares you for a variety of different fields and careers,” says Haajerah, who also holds a Master's in International Business and Policy from Georgetown's Washington, DC, campus. Pursuing a diverse career as a business leader and successful entrepreneur as the co-founder of real estate platform Hapondo, she attributes her success to the skills and abilities she developed as a student.

Strategy Hub is cultivating a new generation of consultants in Qatar and helping to launch the careers of other Georgetown graduates.

Leen Al Rabbat (SFS'21), one of Strategy Hub's first employees, connected immediately with the company's mission:“Strategy Hub embodies the Georgetown spirit of combining ambition with the passion to contribute to the world and to be a part of global change,” she reflects.

Graduating as an honors student known for her exceptional Arabic, Leen has always aspired to build a career focused on meaningful work.“My experience at Georgetown opened my eyes to the magnitude of possibilities for change in the region,” she shares. After gaining experience in Qatar's public sector, she joined Strategy Hub because it allowed her to work on projects that impact the direction of regional development.
