Gulf Medical University launches online education centre
As Gulf Medical University (GMU), Ajman celebrated its 22nd anniversary,
it has launched a dedicated centre that will design and deliver online
professional education to medical professionals, students and individuals
around the world.
Called BA Centre for Online Education, it has been launched in honour of
renowned Indian businessman and philanthropist, the late Dr B. Ahmed Hajee
Mohiudeen, founder of BA Group India and father of Dr Thumbay Moideen, founder
and president of the Board of Trustees of GMU.
The university, which was founded in 1998, celebrated its 22nd founding
anniversary at a special event on the campus on November 5. Attended by the
chief guest Dr Moideen and presided over by Hossam Hamdy, chancellor of GMU, the
event was live-streamed on YouTube for its students.
Also, part of the event was the formal announcement of the GMU Alumni
Association Board. Wishes from all over the globe poured in — from board members
to partner institutions and alumni.
The academic leadership of the university, headed by the chancellor, honoured Dr
Moideen with a ‘Golden Apple’ memento at the event. It recognised his visionary
leadership and foresight, which continue to take GMU to newer heights.
“Twenty-three years ago, there was no Gulf Medical University, but through Dr
Thumbay Moideen’s vision...we now have this magnificent campus.”
