Organised By: QS Quacquarelli Symonds Limited

​​​​​​​The resounding success of last year’s QS-Maple conference, with the theme of defining and designing student success, has brought the 7th edition to Dubai World Trade Centre once again.​

With the steady development of Middle Eastern and African higher education institutions and their increase in international students, the QS-Maple conference provides a valuable forum for the exchange of knowledge and opinions on key factors and challenges specific to international development within the academic sphere. ​

This year’s conference will focus higher education areas such as teaching and curriculum, strategic planning and research, innovative internationalisation, as well as quality assurance and accreditation. In May 2017, academics from around the world will gather in Dubai, and discover the latest advancements in higher education, learn from their colleagues and peers through case studies and discussions and will have the opportunity to network with senior university officials. Visitors to the event will include university presidents and other senior university leaders and strategists, admissions officers, recruiting officers, student services officers, curriculum developers, academics with international linkages and international content in their courses and well as officials from education ministries. ​​
