European CEO Magazine announced this week that it has named the University of Dubai (UD) the Most Innovative Business School in the Middle East in its 2011 Global Business Education Awards.

The award was based on such factors as accreditation, accessibility, value for money, diversity of curriculum and methodology, size (student to teacher ratios), graduation rate, admissions procedures, placement potential, training in technology, holistic approach and sustainability.

Anthony Michael, European CEO Magazine Awards Administrator said the award selection panel used a wide range of criteria to inform its decision, lending the critical eye of a collective 175 years of business journalism to the exhaustive information gathered by the award body's research team.

UD President Dr. Omar Hefni said, “This is a great honor. This award reaffirms our idea that high-quality business education must remain our top priority. Our exceptional faculty and staff work hard to give our students the very best business education and we take great pride in being recognized by such a well-informed publication as European CEO Magazine.”

The winners of the Global Business Awards, which also includes categories such as ‘CEO of the Year’ and ‘Best Private Banking,’ were announced on the European CEO Magazine website and the list will be published in its entirety in the magazine’s December/January issue. 

“Educational development continues to be highlighted by our readers as a topic of great concern,” Michael said, “They appreciate that to develop a modern business, staff must be trained to the very highest possible standards.”
