First MBS graduation held in Dubai
Dubai, October 10, 2013
The University of Manchester held its first MBA graduation ceremony in the region, for 85 graduates of Manchester Business School (MBS) Middle East Centre in Dubai.
The ceremony, held at Atlantis The Palm Hotel, was presided over by professor Fiona Devine, the dean of MBS, and was attended by family members, VIPs, students and alumni of MBS.
It brought together all the latest MBS students in the region who had successfully completed their MBA programmes, as well as those who had studied at the Middle East Centre and graduated previously but who had not attended the formal graduation ceremony on campus in Manchester.
The Middle East centre supports more than 1,500 part-time MBA students in the region, many residing in the UAE, and has a community of around 2,000 alumni in the region.
The school offers the part-time Manchester Global MBA programme with the option of four learning pathways to working professionals who meet the entry criteria.
Randa Bessiso, director, Middle East, said: “The first graduation ceremony in the Middle East is a testament to the success achieved by MBS since the centre opened in Dubai in 2006. Dubai Knowledge Village has proved to be the perfect host and location at the regional hub of training and development.”
“This is a special milestone for MBS and for all our MBA graduates and their families, and we are especially honoured and delighted that Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, UAE Minister of Culture Youth and Community Development, granted his patronage and personal support to this occasion.” - TradeArabia News Service
