Dubai business school records 80pc growth
Dubai, December 29, 2010
The Dubai campus of UK-based Heriot-Watt University has recorded a 36 per cent growth in student enrolments this year, while the School of Management and Languages registered an increase of 80 per cent.
The university’s business degree programmes have had such a high level of interest and enrolments this year that the programme has now introduced a second intake for the first time, a statement said.
From January onwards, there will be two intakes; one in January and one in September for the BBA (Hons), BA/MA in accounting and finance, BA/MA in business and finance or the BA/MA in management.
“The quality of our Heriot-Watt University degree programmes are of an extremely high standard and are recognised world-wide,” said Professor Ammar Kaka, vice-principal of Heriot-Watt University, Dubai Campus.
“These programmes are relevant to business and valued by employers in the Middle East and beyond. The addition of a January intake is in response to the heavy demand of students waiting to study for a Heriot-Watt University degree programme. In September 2011, we will move to our brand new campus and will have capacity for up to 4500 students,” Prof Kaka added. – TradeArabia News Service
