ALHOSN University joins KM Middle East Conference 2012 as Academic Partner

University supports empowerment of knowledge workers in the Middle East
Abu Dhabi, UAE, MArch 26th, 2012 –  ALHOSN University, a leading Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to high-quality value-based education, joined regional discussions on the empowerment of knowledge workers in the Arab World during the 2012 Knowledge Management (KM) Middle East Conference held recently at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr in Abu Dhabi.

The KM Middle East Conference aims to become the premier knowledge management event in the Middle East. This year’s edition included an academic symposium for the first time. ALHOSN, the event’s official Academic Partner, shared insights on the challenges associated with the management of knowledge and participated in workshops facilitated by KM experts from five continents. The university delegates also met and collaborated with business and government leaders from across the region.

“The field of knowledge management is very relevant to our university’s mission as encapsulated by the motto ‘global knowledge with local vision.’ Although KM is a relatively new discipline, it has already been incorporated successfully in many private businesses and non-profit organizations for a better yield in business strategy, IT, or human resource management. We fully support this paradigm as a means to enhance the capabilities and productivity of the region’s growing pool of talented knowledge workers, and we intend to integrate some of its core aspects into our own academic programs,” said Prof. Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor and CEO, ALHOSN University.
Knowledge management encompasses organizational strategies and practices for identifying, creating, representing, distributing and enabling the adoption of insights and experiences. It emerged as an established discipline in 1991, with courses taught in the fields of business administration, information systems, management, and library and information sciences. Other fields such as media studies, computer science and public health have also started contributing to KM scholarship.
In addition to the speeches and academic tracks, KM Middle East Conference 2012 also featured regional KM case studies, examples of KM tools, techniques and technology, and interactive workshops.
Named after Abu Dhabi’s historic ALHOSN Palace, ALHOSN University was founded in 2005 by the Abu Dhabi Holding Company in response to growing local demand for high-quality, value-based educational institutions. It currently offers 12 undergraduate and 7 graduate programs under the Faculties of Engineering and Applies Sciences, Business, and Arts and Social Sciences. ALHOSN accepts students of all nationalities and also accommodates youths with special needs. All of its programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
