DMCC Executive Chairman agrees to become the Patron of Synergy University’s Flagship Executive MBA Programme – Strategy & Leadership
Synergy University’s Dubai Campus (the 1st and only University in the DMCC Free Zone) began the New Year by announcing that Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, DMCC, will be the Patron of its Flagship Executive MBA Programme – Strategy & Leadership.
DMCC’s rapid growth and success under Ahmed Bin Sulayem’s leadership has resulted in recent milestones such as DMCC becoming the UAE’s largest and fastest growing Free Zone; DMCC receiving the Financial Times fDi of the Year Award for World’s Best Free Zone for SMEs; as well as becoming one of the world’s leading commodity hubs for trade and enterprise.
The Synergy University MBA Strategy & Leadership Programme is based on a combination of business theory and practice, hence Ahmed Bin Sulayem’s involvement as Patron of the course will be invaluable to postgraduates looking to further their careers as exceptional business leaders.
Zaid Maleh, Vice Chancellor International – Synergy University, commented:
“This milestone is a natural development of our Dubai Campus being based in DMCC and corresponds positively with our international as well as regional expansion strategy. We are honoured to welcome Ahmed Bin Sulayem on board as Patron of our Executive MBA Programme and look forward to his valuable contribution into the diverse topics of leadership and strategy.”
Ahmed Bin Sulayem will be a regular speaker and lecturer as the Patron of the EMBA Programme and will no doubt inspire the diverse league of senior level managers, directors, and C-level executives who are currently enrolling in Synergy’s EMBA Programme – Strategy & Leadership.
Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, DMCC, said:
“Building exceptional strategy and leadership skills are key qualities all professionals should aspire to master at an early stage in their career as these are crucial to succeed in business. Becoming a Patron of Synergy University’s newly launched EMBA Programme will enable me to share some of the lessons I have learnt in terms of the challenges and opportunities facing the business leaders of tomorrow. At DMCC we believe in empowering and preparing a generation of strategists and leaders through education and guidance and we look forward to further support Synergy University and its postgraduates through its Flagship Executive MBA Programme – Strategy & Leadership.”
The patronage is also part of DMCC’s drive to support its members in contributing to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai’s recently launched Dubai Plan 2021. The initiative aims to create ‘a city of happy and empowered people’ and represents Dubai’s dedication to developing educated UAE nationals and residents that are innovative and productive across a variety of fields.
As one of Synergy University’s most prestigious postgraduate programmes, the EMBA Leadership & Strategy course is attaining several international accreditations most notably the Association of MBAs (AMBA, UK). Another unique feature of the EMBA Programme is its monthly modular structure which allow students to commute to Dubai from neighboring countries – a model that was successfully launched as part of Synergy University’s MBA Women’s Leadership Programme last year.
Synergy University Dubai Campus is located in the DMCC Free Zone. It is licensed by Dubai Government’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and internationally recognised through a diverse array of accreditation bodies.
