The trip was part of EBDA, a leadership development program that takes students out of the classroom to teach them life skills such as time management, working well in teams, and staying calm under pressure.

From December 12 to 16, two separate groups of students, one male group and one female group, trekked across the Jebel Samhan mountain range in southern Oman and took part in a variety of physically and mentally challenging activities, designed to test endurance, teach resilience, and unlock personal potential.
As a part the EBDA leadership program, students get the chance to meet and work with individuals from across Education City’s universities who come from a variety of backgrounds and study a wide range of academic specialties, while learning about their own strengths and weaknesses.

Teambuilding is a core goal of EBDA’s program which aspires to be the pre-eminent student leadership program in the Gulf region, focused on building leadership capacity in Qatar to help the country achieve its future ambitions.
