University of Wollongong in Dubai launches master's degree in innovation
Renowned for quality, credibility and integrity in its education, UOWD has won the acclaim and admiration of its students, alumni, businesses and the government.
The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) recently announced the launch of a new master of business degree specialising in innovation and entrepreneurship (MBus I&E) and is designed for individuals aspiring to pursue a career in innovation-related roles within governments, businesses or non-profit organisations.
Professor Mohammed Salem, president of UOWD, said the university is excited about the new programme which will provide students with the skill set required to develop a culture of innovation within their organisations as well as manage those employed to further develop innovation strategies.
Professor Barry O'Mahony, dean of the faculty of business, said the structure of this degree is UOWD's interpretation of the needs of the government and businesses in the region. It is also based on the vision that His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, had in mind when he declared 2015 'The Year of Innovation'.
"We have developed the master's degree around a business platform to provide a programme that incorporates leadership, people management and the dissemination of innovative practice as well as the more widely-known innovation associated with start-ups," he added.
The programme is developed by senior professors who are all active researchers and with the support of industry professionals and guest speakers.
The university welcomes students who wish to enrol in the new MBus (Innovation and Entrepreneurship) programme in autumn. Enquiries can be made to: email@example.com or contact 042 781 800. Visit http://www.uowdubai.ac.ae.
