- PRESS RELEASE
The student population in the GCC has been steadily increasing over the years and is expected to sustain a 1.8% compounded annual growth rate 'CAGR' within a 10-year period to reach 11.3 million in 2020 from 9.5 million in 2010.
With studies showing that 95% of all females and 80% of all males enrolled in the final year of secondary school applying for admission to a higher education institution in the country and abroad, the UAE naturally attracts the largest number of high-profile academic institutions from all over the world.
Getex Autumn 2012, a dedicated platform to showcase the widest range of top-quality academic, vocational and training programmes from leading regional and international schools, is one of the key initiatives supporting the sustained growth of the academic sector in the UAE and across the GCC.
Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, International Conferences and Exhibitions 'IC&E', the organizer of the event, said, "Getex provides a dedicated networking platform that stimulates the continued growth of the education sector, while supporting initiatives by governments in the GCC to enhance the quality of education in the region. Moreover, it significantly broadens the academic choices of students by filling a void in student recruitment for those seeking to study abroad or in prestigious academic institutions within the UAE."
Organised under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the UAE Minister of Higher Education, Getex Autumn 2012 will run from 21st to 23rd November 2012, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Getex Autumn 2012 will showcase a wide selection of Higher Education and Professional Development programmes, including graduate and postgraduate degrees along with vocational and professional courses.
New to the event this year is the Global Business School Fair featuring a collection of MBA schools from across the world looking to meet with potential UAE-based postgraduate students.
The Global Business School Fair will host a Business Seminar that will provide students with resources to help them make sound career choices, while enhancing their employment potential in both the public and private sectors.
