MOT Partners with Dubai School
UC Berkeley's Management of Technology (MOT) program teamed up with the e-TQM College in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to develop a joint program in total quality management that will include executive education, staff exchanges, and mentorship.
The new Leadership Excellence and Advancement Program was launched with the e-TQM College's commitment of a $500,000 gift to the MOT program over a five-year period. The initiative also calls for collaboration in research, in publications, and in measuring student performance.
MOT, the largest interdisciplinary program on campus, is a partnership between the Haas School, the College of Engineering, and the School of Information. The e-TQM College, a newly certified college in the UAE, is the first online college in the Middle East specializing in total quality management in both manufacturing and service sectors.
The joint program's executive education classes will address topics such as leadership and strategy and will include Haas School faculty through a combination of distance learning, trips to Dubai, and classes at the Haas School. The classes will be offered to executives in Dubai, as well as the larger Arab business world.
