BUiD’s Registrar and Chief Administrative Officer participates in the EducationInvestor Global Summit 2020
Hugh Martin, Registrar and Chief Administrative Officer at The British University in Dubai participated in the EducationInvestor Global Summit 2020. Mr. Martin was a panel member where he discussed how higher education in the MENA region will or should deal with employment opportunities for students.
He explained that universities don’t exist to create “job-ready” graduates; their role is to help students develop and become life-ready. Industry and the private sector should not expect universities to undertake the kinds of extremely specialised training that is needed in specific jobs; instead they need to train their own employees and they need to pay for that training too, working with universities as part of lifelong learning.
