See the World Differently?

by Eddie Rayner

You belong at SAE – the home of creatives

According to OECD’s report on ‘Future of Education and Skills 2030’, education is rapidly evolving into a shared endeavour — a collaborative investment to welcome the next generation into the circle and fortify them as harbingers of the future.

Including and encouraging creative education allows the youth to know themselves and each other as culture-makers — people endowed with the tremendous powers of the imagination, regardless of which field or industry they choose to master themselves in.

Just technical, conventional education is no longer enough to ensure job readiness. It goes beyond the traditional classroom delivery. They need to immerse themselves in everything they learn now to apply it later. Learning how to use ‘Design Thinking’ and ‘Problem Solving’ are the skills that are expected to be seen in the next-generation changemakers.

They need to see the world differently.

The changemakers of tomorrow with an inclination for non-traditional careers, wanting to break away from the usual and carve a niche for themselves in the creative media industries, are the ones that belong at SAE: Creative Media Institute.

“Recent studies have shown that creative industries are one of the most rapidly growing sectors representing great economic potential. At SAE, we are committed to nurturing creative talent by providing a culture and environment that will help them to adapt and adopt 21st-century skills required in our workforce today,” – Jan Horn, Managing Director at SAE Institute, Dubai.

In April 2021, HH Sheikh Mohammad announced on behalf of the Executive Council of Dubai:

“We launched a strategic programme to make Dubai a global capital of the creative economy. We aim to increase the number of creative firms from 8,000 to 15,000 in Dubai and creative professionals from 70,000 to 150,000 within the next five years.”

Furthermore, the Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi published an article on 6 June 2021, which stated:

“The Culture and Creative Industries are key drivers of social and economic growth and diversification in Abu Dhabi. It is one of the fastest-growing economic sectors worldwide, and globally these fields generate annual revenues of $2.25 trillion, provide 30 million jobs and are predicted to make up some 10% of global GDP. To capitalise on this growth, Abu Dhabi has invested significantly and strategically in excess of AED 30 billion to create thriving Culture and Creative Industries in the emirate.”

Such momentum in the economy is bound to increase the demand for talented graduates to satisfy the rapidly growing needs of this expanding and lucrative industry – and SAE is gearing up to be a critical source of supply to match this demand.

SAE is the world’s leading educator in creative media industries, established in Sydney, Australia, in 1963 as a school for sound and audio engineering. From the humble Sydney studio beginnings, SAE today spans the globe with 47 campuses in 23 countries.

SAE has evolved over the years and offers Bachelor Degree and Executive Education qualifications in:

All the offered programmes follow the founding principles of SAE – high quality, industry-focused, practical and theoretical education for creatively talented individuals.

SAE also caters to nurturing young talent (aged between 10 to 17 years) through our Creative Youth Academy. It comprises weekly (intensive) short courses as well as bi-weekly boot camps during Spring, Summer and Winter breaks on topics such as 2D and 3D Animation, Game Development, Music Production, DJ-ing, Graphic Design, Filmmaking, Photography and more.
