Every year we host thousands of students and business leaders at our t-MBA Summit in Istanbul. This year Doga Schools brought the t-MBA Summit to Dubai for the first time in collaboration with Britannica Digital Learning.
Doga Schools hosted a private brunch at beautiful Jumeirah Beach Hotel, on Saturday November 15, 2014 in the heart of Dubai and with a beautiful view of the iconic Burj Al Arab.
The summit saw education leaders, investors, educators, librarians, education providers, politicians, and business leaders. The event started with a welcome speech by Yavuz Basaran, a t-MBA student from Doga Schools Turkey, who proudly represented all +70,000 of his Doga peers in front of an elite audience. Soon after Mr. Basaran’s speech, Mr. Ghandour, Managing Director of Cedar Bridge, took the stage to deliver his keynote speech on “How is business and innovation transforming education in the Middle East?” His keynote speech was followed by a special presentation made by t-MBA Digital students from Al Diyafah High School Dubai who shared the newly created “t-MBA Digital”. They spoke about the journey they have had with t-MBA and Doga Schools and all the benefits it has brought to their lives. Their presentation was followed by the second keynote speech made by Stephen Cox, Chief Academic Officer of Fanar Education Management Company. Mr. Cox brought to the audience a speech with an emphasis on “Successful Integration of Technology into Education”
The summit concluded with a closing ceremony where Britannica and Doga Schools presented beautiful gifts to the speakers and the audience.
t-MBA Digital: t-MBA Digital is based on the education model: t-MBA (MBA for teenagers), which has been applied in Doga Schools for over 9 years. The online system is personalized and students enter into the system based on their personality type and algorithm. The system is personalized because students take the well-known American personality test – the enneagram test.
There are many positive aspects gained from being part of the t-MBA Digital community: global interaction with other t-MBA graduates + students; optional visits and events to attend in Istanbul, Dubai, London, USA, and Finland; social responsibility projects as part of the t-MBA structure; t-MBA Diploma + Pearson qualification; partnership with Doga Schools – a leading K12 brand. As of today students from Germany, Finland, Dubai, Russia and Netherlands are already enjoying the benefits of being part of the t-MBA Digital.
