DAAD DIES Partnership with H-AB in

“Establishing Career Service Structures and Processes at GJU”


How to enhance the employability of GJU students & graduates?

By establishing successful Career Service structures and processes at GJU. This is the main goal of the DIES partnership with the Career Service at Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany and GJU.

GJU benefits from the know-how and experience of the Career Service at Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences, particularly in process management and structural know-how. The extensive career services GJU can thus offer to its students and graduates will enable them to find employment in Jordan, the Arab region and internationally. This is particularly important for GJU students because its applied approach includes mandatory practical trainings in the Arab region and Germany.

The partnership is based on three sub goals:

  1. Skill capacity building within GJU departments dealing with career guidance
  2. Training GJU staff in the running of career services
  3. Networking within career building initiatives, including KAFD-CGO

The DIES partnership includes a variety of activities, including workshops, excursions to companies and business, staff exchanges and project conferences to evaluate the process of the partnership.

The DAAD DIES partnership runs for four years until 2018. The DIES Programs (in German) of the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) aim at improving Higher Education Management in developing countries. The program is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
