City University College (CUC) recently graduated its first cohort of Business students, the Class of 2020.
The event was attended in person by students and staff with parents and guests participating through Zoom. A celebration dinner, which was attended by the students, faculty and guests, followed the graduation ceremony.
The graduating students received their BTEC Higher National Diploma, awarded by Pearson Education (UK) and recognised by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education. Most of the graduates are pursuing their Bachelor’s studies with CUC partner, Ulster University Qatar, according to a press statement.
Richard Hollywood, principal of CUC, addressed the graduates by asking them to always challenge themselves: “Keep a positive growth mindset that allows you to consider ways of not only becoming a better person, but also being a better person with others. Having this type of mindset will allow you to learn from mistakes, take risks and keep an open mind to everything you do.”
In his address, Dr Ahsan Chaudhry, head of Academics, stressed the importance of the three Cs to guarantee success in life after graduation: Confidence, Character and Creativity.
Graduates Faisal Abdul Rasheed and Hawraa Abdul Hussein shared their learning journey on behalf of their classmates and thanked the faculty, management and staff for their continuous support.
CUC has been in operation for two years. During this time, it has begun to “establish itself as a modern and dynamic higher education institution that creates opportunities for all”, the statement notes. It originally offered BTEC qualifications in Business and recently introduced Entrepreneurship & Small Business Management, General Computing, and Computing & Applications Development.
CUC developed a partnership with Ulster University (UK) and is now offering another academic pathway leading to a BSc (Honours) degree in Business Studies with Master’s degrees to follow in the near future.
CUC, in partnership with Ulster University is in the process of building a new state-of-the-art campus in Lusail City ready to open in August 2022, the statement adds.
