Your Australian University in Dubai

Carissa Crowley

“I was very keen to further my education by completing a Masters degree. In 2007 I began the process of looking at various universities - my criteria were simple -I wanted a university that was fully accredited in the UAE and internationally, with a good reputation and very high academic standards. The University of Wollongong is well known in Australia and the campus in Dubai certainly lived up to its good reputation.

“I completed a Master of Strategic Marketing at UOWD in 2009 and during the time that I studied there I made great friends and strengthened my knowledge. The professors were excellent and took the time to provide extra support to the students. There were a lot of students placed in good positions in big organisations, both UAE nationals and expatriates, so the networking opportunities were excellent as were the chances of learning from each other.

“I believe that the program helped to progress my career in the UAE significantly, which has spanned jewellery, luxury brands, defence and logistics.”
