At the request of the General Directorate of Customs, the Centre for Customs and Excise Studies (CCES) and the Community College of Qatar(CCQ) have partnered to develop and deliver an Associate of Applied Science degree in Customs Management. The first cohort commenced in September 2012.

The introduction of this specialised degree program is significant as it recognises the crucial role played by Customs in the economic development of Qatar. The need to achieve and maintain high professional standards throughout the Customs Department is critical to the success of the State of Qatar’s rapid growth in the international marketplace. Customs not only ensures compliance with the country’s regulatory requirements but also plays an important part in the facilitation of trade and travel.

CCES is therefore delighted to be working with CCQ and the General Directorate of Customs on this exciting initiative.  We are also conscious of the important role which the program plays in achieving the Qatar National Vision 2030 by building the capacity of Qatar Customs in a way that will ensure the efficient and transparent delivery of public services and create a vibrant climate for overseas investment.
