UOWD, Master of Quality Management

“This is the only university that has a good programme on quality management systems. I currently work in Abu Dhabi in the field of quality management and enrolled here to further enhance my skills. I can also improve 
my skills through short courses in auditing, investigations and other aspects of quality management.”

Amity University Dubai, Executive MBA

“At present, the economy is at its most competitive, where it is mandatory to have a master’s degree in order to maintain your position in a company. Having a master’s degree could increase my opportunities of getting a better position in a company. This degree should deliver all the learning and training I require for my career.”


Husham Hajhamid

Heriot-Watt University, MSC Petroleum Engineering

“Heriot-Watt is known for this MSc programme, one of the top three in the world. Since the UAE is the best place to be if you are in the oil and gas industry, I hope to be employed here once I complete my degree. The course allows you to acquire many skills. And in a city like Dubai you build on your communication skills as well.”
