SBS Swiss Business School, in collaboration with Al Tareeqah Management Studies, has honoured 159 graduates as part of its 11th graduation ceremony in Dubai.
While most of the male and female graduates were from Arab countries – particularly the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain – this ‘Year of Tolerance Class’ included many graduates from South Asian, East Asian, European and African countries, best reflecting the diversity of the school.
The honourees included eight holders of a DBA Doctorate of Business Administration degree, five of Master of Applied Research, 16 of BBA Bachelour’s of Business Administration, 20 of MSc Healthcare Management and 110 of MBA Master of Business Administration.
In his inaugural speech, Dr Bert Wolfs, academic dean of Swiss Business School – a certified member of Swiss Label – said the journey of learning has no end, and most of the information learnt today will expire in five years. “The brain is a muscle in need for incessant training.”
SBS Swiss Business School, ranked 19th by the European Economic Committee yearly Global DBA Rankings for 2019, spares no effort to provide all students with a quality, cost-effective education, yet maintaining the highest academic standards.
“SBS’ highly-accredited programmes help boost students’ critical thinking, cross-functional competence, communication skills, and global and cultural awareness,” Dr Wolfs said.
SBS has an immense amount of experience in managing education since 2006, he underscored. “SBS… is accredited by the British Accreditation Council and the US Department of Education.”
Dr Hemant Kumar, president of Al Tareeqah Management Studies (UAE), said managing compassionately is not just a better way to build a team, it’s a better way to build a company.
“It’s not just about what you’re trying to accomplish, it’s about how you’re trying to accomplish it.”
He added that what matters most, in business or in life, is the difference one makes for other people, their community, their country, and humanity as a whole.
“There’s more than one way to improve society,” he underlined. “You don’t have to work for a nonprofit or a benefits corporation, just create something new. Add value in whatever you do.”
