Abu Dhabi, October 15, 2012
A total of 120 higher international and local education and training institutes will be offering crucial higher education and career options to thousands of Emirati school-leavers at Najah career fair which opens in Abu Dhabi today.
A leading education, training, and careers fair in the UAE, Najah will run till October 18 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (Adnec) drawing a huge student turnout, said the event organisers.
The expo centre will be buzzing with activity as a record 120 higher international and local education and training institutes offer more than 500 programmes, they added.
With 40 high schools across the UAE expected to bring in students by the bus loads to the three-day event, exhibitors can rest assured that there will be plenty of action on the exhibition floor.
“Najah has become a vital link between high-school leavers looking to explore education and training opportunities with educational institutions and universities,” said Khurram Saeed, the exhibition director.
“Over the next three days, visitors will know all they need to about the education, training, and career options available to them in the UAE and abroad – whether that’s looking for the right university to attend, landing the perfect job, or just seeking advice to help them make the best decisions about their futures,” he stated.

The Dubai office of the global institute which offers higher education opportunities with universities in India, Mexico, Nicaragua and Guyana will conduct a lucky draw offering a free two-year MBA programme.
Leading local universities and institutes will also be out in force at Najah including show sponsors Al Hosn University, Berkley Middle East, and Ajman University of Science and Technology, along with the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT), Al Ain University, American University in the Emirates, Khalifa University, United Arab Emirates University, and the Masdar Institute.
