Twenty-five MBA students and their professors from Hitotsubashi University in Japan recently visited the Higher Colleges of Technology - Dubai Women's College (DWC).
The students were visiting the UAE as a part of their Tourism and Hospitality Programme with the aim of learning about culture, educational institutions and businesses in the UAE. They requested a visit to one of the HCT campuses after learning about the innovative uses of technology and the "learning by doing" approach adopted by the HCT. The group was hosted for a half day of activities by DWC Business Department.
During their visit, the students were greeted by Dr. Saoud Al Mulla, Director of HCT-Dubai Colleges, toured the campus and attended presentations by faculty members.
Dr. Al Mulla said that the visit helped the parties explore opportunities of collaboration between DWC and Japanese Higher Educational institutions. "Collaborations such as this one will result in the exchange of knowledge and expertise between our two nations, and also enhance the academic and cultural experiences and appreciations by students from both sides." Hitotsubashi University Professor, Ken Senoh, thanked the college for their hospitality and commented, "It is a great learning experience for our students to visit the UAE and HCT-Dubai Colleges."
