Fatma Al-Bedaiwi first heard of RIT during the formal ceremony announcing that the university would establish a site in Dubai. Three years later, she was among the first graduates to make their way to Rochester for graduation ceremonies in May.
Al-Bedaiwi, Sameer Al-Marzouqi and Majid Al-Zarouni received master’s degrees in service leadership and innovation. The RIT Dubai campus was established in 2008 in the United Arab Emirates. A new campus building is being constructed and enrollment continues to climb.
RIT recently received a commitment from the governmental agencies of Dubai to launch undergraduate programs starting in the fall of 2010.
“Their continued confidence in RIT was further evidenced by the recent commitment of a new facility to support the undergraduate programs,” says James Watters, senior vice president, Finance and Administration.
