Argelich in Jordan

The international conference of Quality Control, Employability and Internationalization took place November 20th and 21st, organized by JISER-MED at the Princess Sumaya University of Technology in Amman, Jordan.

JISER-MED is a project co-financed by the European Comission under the Erasmus Mundus Program. Its principal objective is to consolidate the relationships between the European Union and the Mediterranean region in the field of higher education and research. The project is coordinated by Dr. Ramon Torrent Macau, Professor of Political Economy at the University of Barcelona.

The conference was inaugurated by the Jordan minister of Higher Education and Scientific Investigation, Professor Rowaida Al-Maaitah, and by the rectors of Princess Sumaya University of Technology and the University of Barcelona, Professor Issa Batarseh and Dr. Didac Ramírez, respectively. Among the assistants were a wide number of rectors and professors of universities from both Mediterranean banks.

The session was dedicated to Quality Control and Employability from the viewpoint of business (“QA and Employability: A Perspective from Employers”), and was moderated by the rector of the university Abdelmalek Essâadi based in Tanger and Tetouan, Professor Houdaifa Ameziane. Among the speakers was the Jordan minister of industry and commerce, Sami Gammoh; the President of the Tourism and Heritage Committee of the Jordanian Upper House of Parliament, Senator Akel Biltaji; and Agustín Argelich, President of Argelich Network.

Mr. Argelich gave a speech entitled “The Power of Collaboration.” He used Apple as an example of a company that applies a policy of disciplined collaboration, highlighting the potential of unified communications and collaboration solutions (where ideas and strategies are proposed in an effort to collaboratively overcome the challenge of employing high-quality candidates in an international surrounding). Developing the concept of the network and networking—“Life is networking”—Agustín shared his visions for future jobs as having a significant demand for networking and project work. Agustín concluded by encouraging investment in telecommunication networks as a creator of wealth.
