The Master of Quality Management students of the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) recently had the privilege to attend the ASQ MEA 2nd Regional Quality Conference 2016 on Innovation and Best Practices of Quality along with Dr Flevy Lasrado, Assistant Professor at the University.

Dr Flevy Lasrado, Assistant Professor at UOWD attended the conference with the students and was also invited as one of the guest speakers delivering a talk on “Organisational Excellence in the UAE through soft TQM”.

The students were excited about attending the event as they gained a lot of industry knowledge and had the unique opportunity to meet with industry professionals. Commenting on behalf of the students, Wardha Qureshi said: “It was a great chance to meet many quality experts from different countries under one roof. The keynote speakers shared a wealth of knowledge in their presentations. The event was well-organised and provided an excellent opportunity to network with quality professionals. I look forward to such activities which will help us to learn great information as well as to know and meet the skilled professionals”.

During the conference ASQ MEA also held case competition for students. Dr Lasrado mentored her students to participate in the competition which saw one of UOWD’s students, Mavish Aak being awarded second place.
