|UOWD launches property development course
The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD), one of the first institutions of higher education accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, has launched on its 15th anniversary an undergraduate program in Property Development & Management.
The new course is among three new bachelor programs - the others being International Business and Insurance.
The degree programs in Insurance and Property Development are being introduced for the first time in the region. The course in Property Development is of particular relevance as the UAE's property market has been described as the fastest growing in the world.
The new programs were announced by Australian Ambassador to the UAE Jeremy Bruer and president of UOWD David Rome on the sidelines of Getex, the region’s biggest education fair.
The Ambassador said the success of UOWD in the UAE was a reflection of the excellent ties between the UAE and Australia.
"The University of Wollongong in Dubai is witnessing increasing demand for its programs because of the top-class Australian education it provides to students. In the 15 years since its establishment, UOWD has made a most important contribution to the strong and growing educational links between the UAE and Australia. The launch of three new degree courses is an example of UOWD's continuing efforts to offer market-driven programs to the UAE's multinational student community," said Ambassador Bruer.
The Bachelor of Commerce in International Business is designed to give students a strong grounding in economics, accounting, management and marketing, while developing core competence in international business practices.
The program equips graduates with the ability, tools and multi-dimensional expertise essential for working as a practitioner in international organizations.
The Bachelor of Commerce in Insurance is designed to prepare students for careers in business, commerce and insurance, so they can excel in today's increasingly competitive and global environment. It will prepare professionals to implement strategies effectively in the insurance and risk management arena.
The Bachelor of Commerce in Property Development & Management will help students acquire a detailed understanding of various forms of property ownership and property investment alternatives, and train them and to use and interpret property valuation reports.
It will also provide them with tools to analyze property management decisions, and a comprehensive understanding of effective property management strategies and methods of implementation.
