GETEX Autumn 2012 opens in Dubai.

GETEX Autumn 2012, the dedicated platform to showcase the widest range of top-quality academic, vocational and training programs from leading regional and international schools, opened today (Wednesday, November 21, 2012) at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. Organised under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Higher Education, GETEX Autumn 2012 will run until Friday, November 23, featuring a comprehensive selection of Higher Education and Professional Development options, including graduate and postgraduate programs along with vocational and occupational courses.

GETEX Autumn 2012 will launch the Global Business School Fair, which provides an opportunity for MBA schools from all over the world to meet with 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. 15 prestigious universities from the UK and about 10 from India are taking part in GETEX Autumn, among other leading universities and academic institutions worldwide.

Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, International Conferences and Exhibitions (IC&E), organizer of the event, said: “Education remains one of the top priorities in the Middle East and this is strongly reflected by the overwhelming response that GETEX Autumn continues to generate over the years. The level of interest this year has become even more intense as we are introducing new segments that are designed to satisfy the specific academic and training requirements of students and professionals in the region. In this regard, GETEX Autumn 2012 will once again bring value to the region’s education industry by providing students with the opportunity to be connected to a wide range of learning options, while offering academic institutions consistently high lead numbers and a better than average student conversion ratio. We are therefore confident of another great run for GETEX Autumn this year, reaffirming its status as the premier recruitment platform for local and international universities and colleges
