AUS’ executive education and graduate programs on display at HR Summit
American University of Sharjah’s (AUS) expanding offering of graduate and executive education programs was highlighted at the annual HR Summit held in Dubai November 12–14, 2018, bringing together over 5,000 attendees, along with 110 exhibitors. Participants were invited to take part in more than 70 seminars and learn from 140 speakers covering many of the most pressing aspects of human resources (HR), including digitization of the workforce and the impact of artificial intelligence on employment. This is the 15th year the summit has taken place, making it an important event on the region’s HR and higher education calendar.
For AUS, the summit was an opportunity to make the industry aware of the university’s increasing number of master’s and PhD degrees, and growing executive and professional education portfolio. The university now offers a PhD in Engineering Systems Management and 14 master’s degree programs, including the widely acclaimed Master of Business Administration (MBA).
The university’s executive education offering is also developing, with the AUS Center for Executive and Professional Education (CEPE) launching a new portfolio of programs this year. The center works with a significant number of organizations from across the region to deliver customized executive education programs, tailored to an organization’s specific learning and development needs.
Eleni Papailia, Executive Education Manager at AUS, says of the university’s participation at the 2018 HR Summit:
“The HR Summit is a chance for us to learn from the HR industry about the current challenges being faced, and what they are looking for from professional education providers. Given the scale and reach of AUS, we are uniquely placed to assist learning and development managers in meeting their organizational needs in a way that has real impact. The HR Summit is valuable, because it allows organizations that we have not worked with before to discover more about what we do, and what makes executive education at AUS so distinctive.”
