Topic: Capital Markets Training

Date: October 10, 2022

“In September 2002, I joined as a student in the College of Business Administration in the University of Sharjah, and exactly twenty years later, I came as a guest speaker and delivered a lecture to the students of the same college.

It was an overwhelming feeling, I felt proud and humble at the same time.

I want to thank every person who contributed to this moment, but above all, I want to show my deep appreciation to H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, the Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, for being the caring father of everyone, and for giving us the honor of shaking his hand in our graduation day. Thank you your highness"

Date: September 29, 2022

"It was a pleasure and an honor to present the Global Economic Outlook for UoS College of Business Administration. The organizing team was exceptionally helpful and assisted in delivering the presentation as smoothly as possible.

I truly enjoyed interacting with the students who asked thought-provoking questions and made the session lively. This reflects the participants' knowledge, not just in academics but in real-world developments, especially during such uncertain times.

Thanks to Prof. Hussein Al-Tamimi and Prof. Ilhan Ozturk, who attended the seminar and shared their interesting views. And a special thanks to Dr. Noura Metawa for the invitation and her efforts in arranging this session."​
