KEYPATH EDUCATION, THE PREMIER PARTNER FOR ONLINE HIGHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS, TARGETS THE UAE AS A POTENTIAL LEARNING HUB
A Market Introduction Seminar at the JW Marriott Marquis on the 20th of March, 2017.
DUBAI, March 12, 2017: Having successfully launched more than 200 online programs at top-ranked higher education institutions in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, Keypath Education is setting its sights on The United Arab Emirates, targeting it as the next learning hub and a key country for achieving higher education innovation.
There are important reasons for companies like Keypath Education to eye The Emirates as a focal point for innovation, as the Middle East e-learning market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 17.4% from 2016 to 2023, according to Research Nester. The market research firm also expects a significant increase in size from USD 379 Million in 2011 to USD 560 Million by the end of 2016.
Keypath Education partners with postsecondary institutions worldwide to launch and grow quality degree programs through online program management (OPM). OPM is a strategic relationship between universities and external partners entailing market research, capital investment, marketing, and student recruitment and retention. Keypath’s leadership team experience is unmatched in the marketplace, having pioneered online program management in the United States and implemented it at some of the world’s top ranked universities.
In a higher education environment that is rapidly evolving and becoming increasingly competitive, Keypath offers The UAE an opportunity to address critical market needs including strengthening university brands, scaling internationally, growing revenue and enrolment and delivering learning opportunities for adults who seek to expand their knowledge in a way that does not disrupt their professional life, but rather enhances it. Additionally, Keypath offers a proprietary B2B Partner Network that connects corporations and organizations to quality academic institutions for unmatched educational opportunities, improving employee satisfaction and workforce qualifications. This is a unique benefit for The UAE as it supports the country’s commitment to developing a strong, competitive and highly education workforce.
“We believe The Emirates has tremendous opportunity for higher education innovation and advancement. For this reason, we are passionate about bringing online education to The UAE because we believe our mission and solutions directly align with the Mission and Vision of The UAE’s Ministry of Education to “Develop an innovative Education System” and meet one of the MOE’s strategic objectives to “Attract and prepare students to enroll in higher education internally and externally, in light of labor market needs.”, explains Keypath Education Chief Executive Officer Steve Fireng.
