The Gulf Today - Business - - Happenings13 -

EFQM, the foun­da­tion be­hind one of the world’s most well-known qual­ity man­age­ment frame­works — “EFQM Ex­cel­lence Model” — re­cently en­dorsed the Uni­ver­sity of Wol­lon­gong in Dubai’s (UOWD) Master of Qual­ity Man­age­ment pro­gramme (MQM) dur­ing a sign­ing cer­e­mony at the uni­ver­sity’s cam­pus in Dubai Knowl­edge Park.

The MOU, signed by Pro­fes­sor Mo­hamed-val M. Salem Zein, Pres­i­dent of UOWD, and Dr Geert Op­den­bosch, CFO, EFQM, in­cludes an agree­ment with EFQM to embed one of its qual­ity pro­grammes as part of the “Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence and Qual­ity As­sur­ance” sub­ject within the Uni­ver­sity’s MQM pro­gramme. Based on this agree­ment, stu­dents who suc­cess­fully grad­u­ate from the pro­gramme will re­ceive pro­fes­sional recog­ni­tion from EFQM as well as

cer­ti­ica­tion as in­ter­nal as­ses­sors for com­plet­ing the “In­ter­nal Asses­sor Train­ing.”

“En­dorse­ment from EFQM

relects our com­mit­ment to drive qual­ity and our am­bi­tion to achieve sus­tain­able ex­cel­lence. This unique part­ner­ship will en­cour­age our stu­dents to de­velop their po­ten­tial to pro­vide in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions to beneit the in­dus­try and will sub­se­quently add sig­ni­icant value to their ca­reers in qual­ity man­age­ment”, com­mented Pro­fes­sor Barry O’ma­hony, Dean of the Fac­ulty of Busi­ness.

UOWD was the irst uni­ver­sity in the UAE to be awarded the highly sought-af­ter EFQM mem­ber­ship in 2007. Upon re­newal of the mem­ber­ship in 2016, EFQM has been ac­tively in­volved in as­sist­ing stu­dents to ef­fec­tively as­sess or­gan­i­sa­tions by of­fer­ing nu­mer­ous train­ing cour­ses on cam­pus such as the EFQM Asses­sor Train­ing course and Sus­tain­abil­ity Asses­sor Train­ing course.

The Uni­ver­sity’s MQM is a one-of-a-kind de­gree pro­gram that pro­vides new grad­u­ates as well as ex­pe­ri­enced man­agers with the spe­cialised skills and knowl­edge of qual­ity man­age­ment as well as other man­age­ment func­tions.
