Dubai Media City Receives Student Delegation Grom George Washington University
(22 January 2012)


A delegation from the George Washington University in the US visited Dubai Media City, a member of TECOM Investments’ Media Cluster, to gain insight into the free zone’s development since its inception 10 years ago.

Jamal Al Sharif, Managing Director, Dubai Media City and Dubai Studio City, welcomed the delegation led by Dr. Salah S. Hassan, Chairman, Department of Marketing and Professor of Strategic Brand Management – School of Business, George Washington University.

The delegation was offered panel briefings and presentations on Dubai’s status as a regional hub. This came in response to the students’ eagerness to understand the current strategies used among all TECOM Investments’ free zone clusters. The discussions that also focused on the multifaceted local, regional and international business interests of TECOM Investments concluded with a tour of the sprawling DMC premises.

Jamal Al Sharif, Managing Director, Dubai Media City and Dubai Studio City, said: “We welcome the visit and interest of the students and faculty from the George Washington University in the unique media ecosystem created by the TECOM Media Cluster. Such collaborations with academic institutions promote innovation and a platform for sharing industry insights that eventually help to meet the needs of the global marketplace.”

This year’s delegation comprised a group of MBA professionals associated with leading Washington-based corporations and government agencies, some of which are working on projects related to Dubai Media City free zone model.

TECOM media cluster frequently hosts student delegations from top-tier international universities that wish to learn more about the regional media hub and the 1,800 companies ranging from global media majors to promising start-ups that operate out of the free zone destination.
