Newsweek: The university that the kingdom’s employers trust above all others

CEO, UBT, Mohanad A. Dahlan, discusses the university’s monumental growth and exacting standards for specialist training

Technology in education is essential. It has created efficiency on a large scale. We introduced technology at all levels, from curriculum to operations, and our next international advisory board in November 2019 will discuss the so-called“technolution,”or technology evolution. It is all about how technology will take the level of education from where we are today into the future.

To this end, the authorities in Riyadh have made education a central element of its Vision 2030 initiative –and are looking to the private sector to help it rise to that challenge. One entity in the vanguard of this movement is the University of Business and Technology (UBT) Co., an umbrella organization that runs a university of the same name and the University of Business & Technology Academy (UBTA).

UBT Academy combines the best of the best together in one curriculum with the most qualified staff and highest standards for assessment to create a modern learning experience.
