2021 World Fellow

Nora Al-Jindi is a passionate educator with over a decade of experience in the field of business academia. She is an advocate for the integration of technology in education to better prepare graduates when joining the workforce. She is currently the Marketing Program Chair at Dar Al-Hekma University in Saudi Arabia.

In her efforts to bridge the gap between theory and practice, she interacts closely with the Business Community to promote the practical side of marketing, allowing students to apply studied theoretical concepts. Through her work as the X-Culture Regional Executive Director, she pioneered the way for Saudi universities to join the X-Culture platform and engage students in virtual global teams.

Inspired by the dynamic possibilities in educational technology, she obtained a MSc in Digital Age Learning and Education Technology (DALET) Degree at Johns Hopkins University. She also holds an MBA from the American University of Beirut. Nora is an active member of her community and was thus rewarded the volunteer award of the year from AlOula Organization, the first non-profit in Saudi Arabia, for her continuous valuable support.
