Due to Covid-19 all the courses will be offered online via Zoom.
Besides delivering internationally accredited professional programs and Executive Management Development programs, CED offers the innovative “Expand your Horizons – Middle East Familiarization Program (MEFP)” to undergraduate and postgraduate business school students as well as business investors. We realize that business crosses international borders each and every day, and the MEFP fulfills the various needs arising out of the globalization of business. MEFP specifically:
Through site visits and workshops delivered by expert speakers, the participants in the MEFP are exposed to:
Site visits form an integral part of the program. Guided city tours to traditional markets (souqs), cultural and historical sites and corporate visits are arranged. Students get an opportunity to meet face-to-face with government officials, business leaders and senior management from leading private sector companies in order to get a feel for the developments taking place, what is being planned for the future and the way business is conducted.
The MEFP typically runs for a week to ten days, but can be customized to the needs of the group and may run for up to three weeks.
CED has successfully designed, delivered, and coordinated several batches from overseas universities since 2008. These programs are customized and designed to complement the readings and materials covered in class and could lead to assignment or project submission at the end of the program due to the large body of knowledge the students are exposed to.
Studying abroad through MEFP is an exciting and enriching experience, both academically and personally, as it gives students the chance to experience life in another country, develop a global business perspective, and broaden their viewpoint of the world. In addition to building lasting relationships, students gain self-confidence, flexibility and the ability to thrive in a new environment.
CED hopes that you and your business school or organization will take advantage of these opportunities to gain international experience. We look forward to partnering with you!
