197 graduate from University of Dubai
Dubai, June 8, 2011
A total of 197 graduates from the college of business administration and the college of information technology of the University of Dubai (UD) received their certificates at a graduation ceremony held recently.
The University of Dubai witnessed so many developments and progress since it was established by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 1997,” said Majid Hamad Rahma Al Shamsi, chairman of the UD Board of Trustees.
“The business administration college at the university received the AACSB accreditation which is only granted to about five per cent of business administration colleges worldwide. UD has signed six MoUs with international universities to cooperate together,” he added.
Dr Omar Hefni, president of UD, said: “I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the graduates on this successful accomplishment. As you venture into the corporate world, I would advise you to prove yourself to your bosses and continue to have a sense of responsibility towards the job, society and country as a whole.”
“Do consider future career goals and developments and continue to learn as learning does not have an end. The longer you live the more you learn.”
“Strive to grow professionally and if possible, continue graduate education. Try to overcome challenges, always plan ahead, set your targets and try to accomplish them. Once you’ve accomplished these, it will lead to success,” he added.
The graduation ceremony for the 197 graduates, 58 per cent of whom were Emiratis, was held at the Dubai Cultural & Scientific Association and attended by more than 1000 guests. – Reuters
