What's New in Education This Month
October 2015

Synergy Students are welcomed aboard!

Over the past few months, we have been planning and preparing for the return of the academic year while looking ahead to implement our strategic vision and mission. We have spent a good amount of time thinking about what it takes to be a Successful Entrepreneur, a Creative Hotel & Restaurant Manager, a Leading Economist and an Innovative Programmer in the 21st century, and we are taking the necessary steps to get to that future.

The class of the September 2015 intake, has the distinction of experiencing Synergy University venture further into its expansionary journey. Through our Dubai Campus, students have the unique opportunity of being part of the build-up phase to Dubai's EXPO 2020 which is set to become one of the world’s most promoted events.

With over 45 nationalities at the Dubai Campus, it becomes a “model of diversity” replicating what Dubai is all about. Students will learn from one another while tuning in to some of the best academic as well as industry practitioners.

A lot of the efforts contributed towards making this happen was from educators across various schools in the UAE.

Synergy University's Career Center strives to provide highest quality career services to our students. Our aim is to successfully connect each student to a suitable employer.

It's our mission to help our students understand their career options, kick-start their careers and cope with the ever-challenging work environment.

Tackling the toughest equation: how to engage children in mathematics

The rise in computer use combined with a decline in core maths skills presents a challenging conundrum for educators developing future generations of workers, Robert Matthews writes It is the future, it is where the top paying jobs are, and the nation is committed to it.
