Scholarship to Emirati Students!

GBS aims to continue its mission of ‘changing lives through education that makes a fundamental difference to living standards and access to learning’ throughout the Middle East, Africa, and the Gulf region. The organisation has taken great care to provide industry-relevant courses that maximise the chances for students to achieve their dream career, start a new business or expand an existing one. GBS Dubai, in its commitment to providing quality education in the UAE, is offering special scholarships to Emirati youth for fulfilling their aspirations to acquire international accredited applied knowledge to contribute to the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of the UAE. ‘Making a difference to local communities’, is an important value that GBS pursues. 

GBS Dubai is based in Dubai Knowledge Park!

Dr Viswajeet Rana, Chairman of the Executive Board, GBS Dubai, informed of the vision and mission of the GBS group of institutions and underlined its commitment to offer high-quality education for aspiring students from different parts of the world. Dubai, which is considered as the ‘melting-pot’ for the East and the West, has always been one of his preferred educational destinations as a global city that offers world-class infrastructure, safety, security, and a conducive atmosphere for learning, research, internship, and job opportunities for the graduating students. Realising the disruption of the global environment in all sectors of life and business, Dr Rana believes that social and sustainable decision-making need to be weighed for planning the future of the aspirational youth of tomorrow. Further, Dr Rana emphasised GBS values that include care for students, cherishing diversity, ethical and professional operations, entrepreneurial spirit, and willingness to learn and improve themselves. He also emphasised that GBS Dubai will be working towards promoting applied international education amongst Emirati students in pursuance of one of GBS’s important values viz. ‘making a difference to local communities” and encourage the young aspirants through its scholarship programmes’.
