Master of Quality Management alumni reunite at UOWD

Thursday, 17 December, 2015

Alumni from UOWD's Master of Quality Management postgraduate degree program were reunited recently at a reunion event held by the University’s Faculty of Business.

Founded in association with the Dubai Quality Group in 1996, UOWD is one of the only universities in the region to offer a Quality Management degree and students have been flocking to study at the program at the institution for almost 20 years. 

Over the course of the reunion, alumni had an opportunity to catch up with their fellow graduates, network and hear more from the program’s tutors, Dr Slim Saidi, Dr Bostjan Gomiscek, Dr Taghreed Abu Salim and Dr Flevy Lasrado, about the direction that the course is now taking. They were welcomed back to their alma mater Dr Payyazhi Jayashree, Acting Dean of the Faculty of Business, and also had the chance to discuss the creation of a permanent forum for exchange and networking between current students and course graduates.

Speaking about the event, Dr Slim Saidi said: “The reunion was a very special event for current students, alumni and Faculty alike. Because of discussions held at the event, we’re now working with our program’s alumni to create an ongoing advisory group for the enhancement of the program, building further on the strong foundations we already have with industry and providing a regular forum for networking.”
