Aida Bazara is the first student who has earned a master's degree in International Development and Gender with a degree of ‘Very Good’ from the Gender Development Research and Studies Center (GDRSC) at Sana'a University on March the 30th 2018.  Her MA thesis was on the ‘The Role of Corporate Social Responsibility in Yemeni Multinational Companies: a Tool for Community Development’. The study aimed to explore the motivation of the Mobile Telecommunication Network, Yemen (YMTN) and the Yemen Liquefied Natural Gas (YLNG) corporations to adopt CSR in Yemen and the features of CSR initiatives that have been undertaken.

It is noteworthy, that the Master's Program in International Development and Gender (launched in April 2011) is the first program of this kind at the level of Sana'a University and Yemen’s universities in this field and the first program at the regional level which focuses on development studies from gender perspectives.
