Sharjah’s Major Educational Event Plots Well-Rounded Developmental Path for UAE Nationals

ALHOSN University Discusses Modern Youths’ Learning Needs with Academic Elite at 3rd Universities Forum
UAE, February 24th, 2013 – ALHOSN University, a leading Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to high-quality, value-based education, joined some of the UAE’s top educational institutions and experts in discussing important issues affecting the learning environment and abilities of youths – particularly UAE Nationals – during the 3rd Universities forum which ran from February 19 to 20, 2013 at the Waset Youth Center in Al Sweihat, Sharjah.
Organized by the Youth Centers Department of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, Sharjah, this year’s Forum enlightened student attendees on their career options and the right attitudes they need to bring into college and through employment.  Daily sessions were held from 8am to 1pm and 4pm to 10pm.
ALHOSN took this opportunity to inform participants of its holistic approach to personal and professional development under its philosophy of ‘global knowledge with local vision’ and shared its views on the growth of young Emiratis. The university encouraged students to consider unique programs for both genders and entertained inquiries from top students interested in the ALHOSN brand and mission.
“The UAE needs bright, young, driven leaders to sustain the success it has amassed over just four decades of existence. Sharjah’s Universities Forum has always been an important platform for ALHOSN University to determine how to best empower Emirati youths with the knowledge, skills and character they need to continue building this country’s future. As usual we were very pleased with the warm response from the participants and we hope to see many of these faces become part of our university’s family soon,” said Professor Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor and CEO of ALHOSN University.
The annual Universities Forum in Sharjah was first held in 2011 to support the UAE’s Emiratization program and has since grown into one of Sharjah’s leading special events. The Forum has consistently drawn over 1,500 attendees every year since its inception.
Founded in 2005 by the Abu Dhabi Holding Company to provide high-quality, value-based education to students of all nationalities, ALHOSN University has been at the forefront of dialogue on meaningful and education-driven Emiratization. The university offers 12 officially certified undergraduate and 7 graduate programs under the Faculties of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Business, and Arts and Social Sciences.
