The ceremony was the leading Dubai based university’s 10th graduation event, and recognized its class of 2020 by illuminating one of the most iconic buildings in the world with the faces of this year’s graduates.

The virtual graduation ceremony took place in the presence of His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Tolerance, as well as the university’s chancellor, President, faculty members and students under the theme of ‘The Beauty of Endurance’, and was live streamed on the university’s website through YouTube and Facebook. A building known for being a symbol of infinite possibilities, Canadian University Dubai’s Burj Khalifa virtual graduation was a reminder to its 2020 graduates that the future is bright after the university had to postpone its graduation ceremony this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a way to bring its graduates together virtually after months of social distancing. Mr. Buti Saeed Al Ghandi, Chancellor, Canadian University Dubai, said: “Just a little over two months ago, we took the necessary steps to move to a virtual campus, and now we have hosted our first ever virtual graduation.

These seamless digital changes prove the sheer determination, hard work and compassion to succeed from our students and faculty in this time of uncertainty.” Dr. Karim Chelli, President and Vice-Chancellor, Canadian University Dubai said: “This year represents the turn of a new decade, as well as unprecedented times that have challenged us and forced us to look at things differently. We have taught our latest graduates to go out into the world with optimism, ingenuity, compassion, and grit. Their next steps will be symbolic of this time and their vision and choices will mark a generation”.

Laith Wazani, 2020 Low-income Student Graduate of Canadian University Dubai commented: “It really has been a year to remember for the Canadian University Dubai faculty members and we wanted to join our students and celebrate together their graduation from afar. Together we have faced many challenges and had to learn new ways to adapt and change to deliver a healthy learning environment during a global pandemic but it is safe to say we have gone above and beyond and it is a pleasure to see the class of 2020 graduate in the most memorable way possible”.

Dana Haroun Low-income Student, 2020 Graduate of Canadian University Dubai said: “Canadian University Dubai showed us that no matter what the situation is, they can find a way to celebrate us and make us feel happy.

March 19th, 2015: Employers from leading international and local firms were on campus at Canadian University Dubai (CUD) to seek out talented students and graduates for a range of employment and internship opportunities at the recent annual Career Fair. This year's turnout was a clear indication of the UAE's buoyant employment market, particularly for graduate-level positions.

The Fair saw leading UAE corporations, including AST Telecom, join international names, such as Bosch and Thomson Reuters, to tap into CUD's student and graduate talent pool, in search of new recruits for a range of professional disciplines. With five undergraduate schools offering a diverse range of degree programs, the Fair attracted companies across the whole business spectrum, from banking, recruitment and real estate, to architecture, engineering and technology.

Among this year's recruiters was former CUD student Imad Haddad, who attended the Fair to represent his now-employer, Dubai-based Architects and Engineering Consultancy, LaCasa. As a graduate of CUD's Bachelor of Architecture program, Imad knows all about what it takes to find the perfect job.

He said, "Employers are looking for something that sets you apart and I found that LaCasa were interested in my range of technical and software skills in particular. The projects I undertook as part of my degree helped me to develop and apply these skills, so my studies at CUD ultimately proved vital in securing this job."

Ayman Jaber, Brand & Marketing Communications Manager at LaCasa, said that the company wasn't just looking for talented architects, but with its growing office team, the organization was also seeking candidates in business disciplines, as well as engineering and design.

Also searching for motivated students to join their business were Emiratization recruitment specialists, Iris Executives. Managing Director Hamza Zaouali said, "We're looking for students from any discipline, but the most important aspect for us is the right mindset. Candidates need to be motivated self-starters. We have a comprehensive training program that teaches new hires everything they need to know, but the right attitude is key."

Organized by the Student Affairs team, the Career Fair coincided with the launch of CUD's new online Job Portal, established in partnership with the University's strategic jobs partner, Bayt.com. The Job Portal provides a one-stop-shop for students and graduates of CUD to access information on part-time work, graduate jobs and internship opportunities, and represents an important strategic development in CUD's commitment to facilitating and accelerating graduates' journey into the world of work.

The Fair proved to be a highly successful event for Mostafa Nassar, Business Development Manager of WMS Metal Industries, who said, "This is the second consecutive year that WMS has participated in the Canadian University Career Fair. I recommend all companies, especially SMEs, to take part in this initiative. The level of enthusiasm and commitment of the students is fantastic and we look forward to participating once again next year."

Mr. Michael Todd, Work Placement and Career Services Manager at CUD concluded, "The Career Fair is an invaluable opportunity for our students to meet potential employers and showcase their knowledge and skillsets.

"I am very proud of our students as I received a lot of positive feedback from the employers who are now faced with the challenge of how to narrow down their candidate lists. The success of the career fair was also in large part a result of the student volunteers who kept things moving and helped to guide and prepare the students during the event."
