The board of governers of Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University (HBMeU) met to discuss the Ph D programmes to be launched for the 2013/2014 academic year and key topics related to the initiative promoting Dubai as the world’s Islamic economy capital.

The programmes will include 14 out of 120 learners who will be selected after a series of written and oral examinations.
The meeting further underlined the university’s quality initiatives that support Dubai as the world’s Islamic economy capital and about the university’s plans to encourage research studies in banking, Islamic finance and HR development to address the needs of the Islamic economy.
