Despite its considerable oil wealth, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s population is growing exponentially, and it is already witnessing an overwhelming number of young Saudis entering the labor market. RCC was created to address this challenge and provide young Saudis with the vital knowledge and technical skills needed to meet the needs of the labor market.

Students attending RCC can specialize in applied medical sciences, nursing, medical equipment, computer science, administrative sciences, sales management, finance, and human resource management.
