“It is my pleasure to welcome all the students to the DIFC. Programmes like the Cass Business School’s Dubai executive MBA help to create new business leaders,” said Abdulla Mohammed Al Awar, CEO of DIFC Authority.
“We place a premium on professional development for the skills we need to support our future economic growth. The creation of world-class business learning opportunities is one of the cornerstones of our strategy to develop DIFC as one of the world’s established global financial centres,” he added.
Professor Roy Batchelor, director of the Dubai EMBA course, highlighted that the students could look forward to some serious academic study with some leading professors, as well as making new friends.
Ehsan Razavizadeh, regional director for Mena, said: "Cass Business School’s reputation in the region is flourishing and the success of our prestigious EMBA is once again reflected in our 2010 intake.”
“Our students are particularly diverse both from a cultural and professional perspective. We have maintained the cohort size of the previous year which is part of our wider strategy to preserve the quality of the learning experience,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
