Online UAE Universities Announces 2,400 Scholarship Opportunities in Online MBA Program for UAE

In a move that surprised even the most optimistic of educationists, Online UAE Universities (OUU) announced 2,400 scholarship opportunities for students to enroll in their online MBA programs in UAE

In part with its mission to ensure the access of high quality education to every student so that each may satisfy their professional and career ambitions, OUU recently announced its initiative to give 2,400 scholarships to students for Online MBA Programs in the UAE. This initiative was launched with an aim to encourage enrollments for online MBA programs offered by leading online universities in the UAE as well as motivate aspiring professionals to take the next step in their academic career.

So far, nearly 1,150 students have been able to benefit from this project and have thus gone on to achieve all their academic and professional goals, ultimately helping them to start a successful career in the subject field of their choice. “Our goal has and always will be to support the academic objectives of students, no matter where they come from”, explains Kareema Waseem, Public Relations Director for OUU. “A lot of students the world over face major difficulty when it comes to financing their education. We are providing them with an opportunity to do just that.” Further, these scholarships have been drawn from a fund dedicated towards helping students achieve their academic goals and attain quality higher education. This fund has been created by leading regulatory institutes in the field of online education. “We have been in coordination with members from a number of top accreditation agencies and regulatory authorities for the purpose of gathering money for the establishment of this fund as we figured that it was the best way we could promote online education, specifically online MBA”, stated Kareema. “It is through the support of such institutions that we have been able to provide so many scholarships to students.”

Online UAE Universities (OUU) prides itself on being one of the few online education portals in the UAE that offer students a platform through which they can gain access to top online universities in the region. A lot of the academic programs provided through OUU undergo a stringent evaluation procedure whereby they are assessed against certain relevant criteria or standards in order to ensure that students are provided degree, diploma and certificate programs catering to their needs and preferences. Through this proposal, OUU further substantiates its claim of providing high quality, comprehensive and well-rounded academic programs for students looking to enhance the value of their academic profiles.

Raeford University Join Hands with Arab Women’s Association to Empower Women throughout the Gulf


In a bid to empower women in the Gulf region, Raeford University announces to start a new scholarship program, helping them to advance professionally and improve their living standards.

To ensure that women in the Gulf are provided with improved options and the right opportunities to grow professionally. Raeford University has officially announced to have joined hands with the Arab Women’s Association. According to the university officials, both the organizations have signed a pledge that calls for supporting women, particularly working women and entrepreneurs in the Gulf.

As part of this partnership, Raeford University and Arab Women’s Association (an advocate of women rights in the Gulf) will be providing new scholarship opportunities for women in the region. Raeford University has already been supporting women in the Gulf region through quality online education and this latest initiative will further pave way for women in becoming productive part of the region’s economy.

“Raeford University has a proven history of enriching minds with exceptional learning and development opportunities in different parts of the world. We just not only want to educate our students through advance programs, we want them to be successful and satisfied. However, frail global economy and unfortunate financial conditions sometime prevent talented students in achieving their goals. For such students, Raeford University scholarships are considered to be the most desirable form of financial aid worldwide,” said Karen Briggs, official spokesperson of Raeford University.

Raeford’s LEAD Scholarship Program has also been assisting working, single and even divorced women in their bid to accomplish higher education objectives with grace. There is a big scope of online education in the Gulf, where students, particularly women are eager to learn. This is one of the reasons why Raeford University has now collaborated with the Arab Women’s Association, as together they aim to increase their support for them on moral and financial grounds. “The idea is to empower women in the Gulf with financial assistance, making sure that they continue to inspire future generation with their skills and innovation,” added Karen Briggs of Raeford University.

As far as women in the Gulf region are concerned, they are exceptionally talented and equipped with the skills that can earn them respect in their respective fields; they just need perfect chances to make perfect choices. “When we see women in the Gulf region, they are either working or are single or divorced, which limits options for them to move ahead. However, in the recent years, many women have found their careers in media and military. Our partnership with Raeford University can help those women not only to go back to school, but also to continue their personal and professional commitments, We believe that educated women represent an educated nation” said Abeer Rafeek of Arab Women’s Association.
