wasl Secures MBA Scholarships for Employees

wasl Asset Management Group has signed an agreement with the Canadian University of Dubai (CUD) that will offer an MBA scholarship to one employee a year.


The move reinforces the group’s commitment to education and builds on the ‘Day of Education’ initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, which aims to improve and develop education, being a national necessity and an essential part of Vision 2021.  


CUD has offered one seat per year for wasl employees to enrol and obtain an MBA in a move to encourage knowledge and education. Furthermore, wasl has accepted the offer, always been keen on attracting UAE nationals with world-class education, and in turn further supporting Emiratisation.


An official agreement was signed at wasl Headquarters between H.E. Mr. Buti Saeed Al Ghandi, CEO of the Canadian University of Dubai, and Mr. Abdallah Obaidallah, COO of wasl Asset Management. 


Obaidallah said, “We are committed to the higher education and professional development of our employee body that not only supports their career advancement, but their contribution to society as a whole. We are pleased to be able to do so through a partner like CUD.”


CUD is a reputed university in Dubai that is accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, with its MBA programme internationally recognised and recently ranked by Forbes Middle East as the 1st in Dubai, 2nd in the UAE and 3rd in the entire Arab world.


The University offers MBA programmes in Finance and Finance with CFA Preparation, which undoubtedly adds value to any individual from the Finance department that enrolls. This year, Fatma Sarhan from the Finance Department was nominated to pursue higher education for her hard work and dedication to the company, and will start the programme next semester in September.


The programme offers flexible admission dates and evening or weekend courses, which allow students to complete their education whilst working or raising a family.  For more information about the Canadian University of Dubai Master of Business Administration programme, visit: http://www.cud.ac.ae/programs/graduate.
