The Summit was targeted towards students of medical sciences, engineering, IT and business management.
The Summit brought various academia experts to address the students on practical and simple career mapping routes which can help them with their career planning. The interactive sessions will address the various career related doubts and queries of students.
“Today, to flourish in a dynamic global economy, every student deserves an education that culminates in twenty first century readiness for college, careers and civic participation. Many students need additional preparation to handle the increasingly higher expectations of postsecondary education, or civic responsibility,” said Dr. Namrata K Pathania, Executive Director, Founder & Editor and the organizer of Future of Sciences & Management event.
The main objective of the Summit was to nurture students’ vision through adequate as well as relevant information in a direct and effective way and give them a comprehensive overview of educational programmes offered in the UAE and abroad, by public and private institutes, on undergraduate and postgraduate level. It also aims at supporting the efforts of graduates and job seekers to kick start their career, change their job or enhance their skills through lifelong learning.
“Today, we are in the midst of most significant and fundamental changes in the science industries, such as healthcare, information technology, business and engineering industries. Young people who may eventually consider a career in science and management needs to understand the changing nature of industries and their impact on attending medical, non-medical and management universities, choosing a career, and developing the skills they will need to be future leaders in the field,” Dr. Pathania added.
