UAE’s Capital College has picked up the Best Emerging Business School of the Year award at the Second International Business and Academic Excellence (IBAE) Awards 2020, presented by the prestigious GISR Foundation.
The college bagged this award for its consistent performance as a higher education body, which was effectively supported by its international university partners, memberships that created social awareness and instilled a sense of responsibility among its students. Apart from launching a new partnership with a globally top ranked European business school, and launching 10 new management programmes, the college was commended for holding memberships with sustainable development-centric organisations like PRME and EAUC.
As per research, the Middle East has transformed as one of the growing hubs for industrialists and entrepreneurs, with MENA’s investment start-up rising to over $700 billion in 2019 alone. With the UAE accounting for almost 60% of the funding, followed by Egypt in the second position, the pandemic has further accelerated individuals to venture into entrepreneurship. In line with this, Capital College believes that higher education for the management sector will boost one’s knowledge and practical experience to successfully venture into the industry and grow. The college further believes that through such programmes, students will be able to hone their skills and share ideas, strategies and potential models with their peers and faculty, allowing them to kick-start their entrepreneurship career with a network in place. In line with this, IBAE recognised the college’s vision to introduce programmes that will guide budding entrepreneurs and professionals to up-skill and future-proof their employment opportunities.
Commenting on the win, Dr Vikas Nand Kumar Batheja, Co-Founder and Director, Capital College, comments: “This is certainly a breakthrough to see our higher education institution recognised and rewarded, especially during these unprecedented times. We are glad to see that organisations like IBAE and GISR Foundation have recognised our efforts towards fostering student education and experience while paving pathways for their successful careers. This makes us more resilient and motivated to work toward a similar long-term vision where we can support young entrepreneurs and business enthusiasts to achieve their ambitious dreams and goals.”
