HBMeU's Board of Governors looks into preparations to receive first batch of Ph.D. learners

[UAE, July 31, 2013] – As part of its efforts to enhance the quality of knowledge, the Board of Governors of Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University (HBMeU) recently concluded its fourth annual meeting for the academic year 2012/2013. The meeting agenda included reviewing the minutes of the previous meeting and addressing a number of key topics related to the initiatives that support Dubai's transformation into the world's Islamic economy capital, while discussing the Ph.D. programs to be launched by the beginning of the coming academic year 2013/2014. The introduction of the Ph.D. programs complements efforts to foster e-learning excellence through contemporary scientific research, academic and intellectual work and dissemination of modern knowledge.

The Board of Governors examined in detail the mechanisms to be used for the application of the Ph.D. programs in three key areas of learning – Ph.D. in Total Quality Management, Ph.D. in e-Education – Educational Leadership, and Ph.D. in Health and Environmental Studies – Healthcare Management. The three programs will include 14 out of 120 learners who will be selected after a series of written and oral examinations.  

The Board commended the efforts of HBMeU towards supporting strategic growth through the launch of high-level intellectual, academic and research initiatives, emphasising that the Ph.D. dissertations will cover various research topics that support the strategic objectives of UAE Vision 2021, including the Challenges of Unemployment among Emiratis from a Scientific Perspective, Theory of Effective National Government Excellence Program, Scale of Quality of Knowledge across Government Entities in the UAE, Smart Application of Information Technology, Towards a First-Class Healthcare Management in UAE, and About Technical and Vocational Learning: Incentives and Disincentives.

The meeting further underlined HBMeU's quality initiatives that support Dubai as the world's Islamic economy capital, in line with the announcement made by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The attendees also spoke about the University's plans to encourage research studies in banking, Islamic finance and HR development to address the needs of the Islamic economy.

H.E. Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Dubai Police Chief and Chairman of HBMeU's Board of Governors, said that the Board is keen to adopt the best initiatives that support efforts to promote the University as a leader in the field of e-learning and distance learning in the Arab World. “Adopting the three Ph.D. programmes in line with the terms and conditions of the Commission for Academic Accreditation of the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, is crucial to strengthening the knowledge-based society and raising the bar on e-learning as per the best international practices,” he added.

Lt. General Dahi Khalfan further pointed out that HBMeU is committed to helping learners in their Ph.D. dissertations to promote social and economic development, in line with the UAE Vision 2021, reaffirming that the University looks forward to ensuring the implementation of its initiatives to promote its position as the first choice academic institution in the Arab World.
