Incredibly, 30 fully sponsored scholarships are now being offered to qualified candidates who have a passion for humanitarian efforts on a global scale by the first college to ever offer an international humanitarian master’s degree program in Sustainable Humanitarian Actions. The admissions office for the school has now been opened.
The doors to the DIHAD Humanitarian College, which was established through a partnership between the DIHAD Sustainable Humanitarian Foundation and UCAM University, Murcia, Spain, are scheduled to open in October this year. There, students will enroll in a variety of classes and activities that focus on humanitarian issues and accumulate 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer & Accumulation System) over the course of a single academic year. A practical internship with a committed partner will also be a component of the master’s degree curriculum through the DIHAD (Dubai International Humanitarian Aid and Development Conference and Exhibition).
The biggest number ever recorded of people, over 274 million, are in immediate need of humanitarian aid, and over one billion people, or 16 percent of the world’s population, are currently residing in nations that are experiencing protracted crises. For genuine change to have an influence on a society’s dynamic for self-sustainability in the face of an ever-expanding environment of uncharted discoveries and convoluted political borders, the knowledge and experience of a humanitarian official must excel. Given the complexity of these problems, novel solutions are required.
One of the main discussions and keynote topics in the master’s degree program at DIHAD is the understanding that knowledge of international affairs and projects full of innovation are some of the most strategic parts to a humanitarian mission’s success. These topics include sustainable economy, humanitarian leadership, and humanitarian future and foresight. Whether working for a commercial or public organization, an international humanitarian emissary must constantly learn and develop in order to keep up with the rapidly shifting economic conditions and geographic challenges they may encounter. The master’s program also emphasizes crucial topics in soft power engagement and diplomacy while discussing issues in strategic management for safe and responsible action.

Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani spoke on the significance of providing support and opportunities to individuals who wish to achieve humanitarian excellence.

Our goal is to further develop the minds and character of the humanitarian professional. We plan to encourage people who have a strong drive and passion for contributing to the creation of a better, more sustainable future for all of humanity by launching the admissions season with 30 fully financed scholarships.
