The business of Education is often a path filled with boundaries and needs to be tread on with compassion. To be able to bring students of different cultures and backgrounds on the same page is challenging and it is here that student support is a very important part and the most crucial one.
This is the first time Forbes Middle East has announced its Higher Education Awards and MAHE Dubai has successfully made its mark as the only Indian university to have qualified for the final round of the competition.
College life can be filled with hurdles and highs and lows. To be able to navigate them requires more than text-book or classroom knowledge.
Students need that extra support to be able to achieve further than their career ambitions and that which can contribute to their overall success.
Forbes Middle East recognizes this importance and the excellence in delivering equivalent results in this sector. Hence, Manipal Academy of Higher Education was awarded with the “Outstanding Support for Students” title.
Manipal Dubai eases the students with full rounded facilities, in housing, infrastructure and services. There is a full time Student Services Officer present on campus throughout the academic year to support students in their academic and personal development. The Student Services Officer is qualified to provide counselling and guidance services. Additionally, we also have an on-campus Career Services & Guidance Counsellor who handles students’ career progression pathways. Students are welcome to approach the Student Services Officer by prior appointment and can discuss any matter of professional or personal nature and get guidance. Complete confidentiality of such discussions is maintained and the Student Services Officer ensures that they provide a secure and safe ambience for the student to share their problems and concerns.
The award was received on April 24th 2019, by Dr. S.V. Kota Reddy, Academic President, MAHE Dubai and Ms. Mrinalini Jayakumar, Student Council President, MAHE Dubai at Taj Dubai in a formal event hosted by Forbes Middle East. The award is in appreciation of the student-centric academic delivery of MAHE Dubai and recognizes the academic and non-academic student support the university extends towards the development of its students.
Dr. Kota Reddy proudly sharing his happiness post the win, said, “We, at Manipal Academy of Higher Education – MAHE, Dubai are delighted to receive this prestigious award from Forbes Middle East. It fittingly recognizes the hard work we put in as a team to ensure the holistic growth of our students, and we couldn’t be more pleased!”
MAHE Dubai as a University strives to provide the best University experience to each of their students. We see this award as a responsibility to deliver the best to our students in academics, infrastructure, exposure, practical application, sports, culture and last, but not the least, in student support.
