Edinburgh Business School welcomed 100 of its UAE alumni, students and guests in Dubai on Saturday, 8th June 2013 at The Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai.

It was pleasing to see our alumni and students enjoying the afternoon of informal networking, renewing friendships and meeting new members of the alumni community or student body over a nice lunch.

Earlier on the day, the MBA Programme Director at Dubai Campus, Shirin Jarrar, held an information session for prospective students prior to lunch, which was well-attended by working professionals residing mainly in Dubai & Abu Dhabi.

The prospective students had got the chance to ask questions to our alumni panel, which was formed of the following names:


  • Dr Mark Pierotti, Chief Operating Officer – AJA Private Jets
  • Mr Mohannad Ghazaleh, General Manager – Said Al Saghir General Trading
  • Mr Ahmad Muhamad Salih, Manager, Project Management Section – Khatib & Alami CEC

Mark, Mohannd & Ahmad each had approached our same MBA programme in a different route and therefore were all able to share their individual experiences with the prospective students.

After the information session, prospective students joined the alumni and students for lunch which was a very good opportunity to meet a larger number of our alumni and students and learn their first-hand MBA experience.

Feedback from most alumni was that the networking events are highly regarded and gives them an opportunity to renew friendships and make new ones, while feedback from the information session was particularly excellent.
