(MENAFN - Arab News) Higher education is becoming a major driver of economic competitiveness in an increasingly knowledge-driven global economy, said Faisal bin Abdulaziz Almubarak, Alfaisal University provost.

"Alfaisal University has a commitment to provide quality educational programs to its students, as the future of the Kingdom and the world depends on our children and our university students receiving the best education," Almubarak said in a statement.

Almubarak announced the appointment of Prof. Bajis Dodin as dean of the College of Business at Alfaisal University.

"Dodin's passion is to see that business students are taught well and for them to do great things in the world. His commitment toward research excellence and his vision for engaging strongly outside the University and the College have made him an outstanding choice to lead Alfaisal College of Business," he said.

Prior to joining Alfaisal, Dodin was associate dean and professor of operations management and management science at the University of California at Riverside (UCR).


"Dodin brings a global perspective and a talent for developing strong relationships with donors and industrial partners and has the experience of working across disciplines, which will support the business college's focus on academic excellence and help it to flourish in science, engineering and medicine-focused environment," he said.

Almubarak said, "The hiring of Dodin is part of Alfaisal's strategy and continuous quest to become a world-class university known for its leadership roles in education and in producing original knowledge in the fields of business, engineering, medicine and science."

Under the leadership of Dodin, "the COB is well-positioned and poised to offer effective and rich programs to Alfaisal's students and bring the college to new competitive levels."

As a student-centered and research-focused institution, Alfaisal has the obligation to ensure the most qualified international experts as faculty members to enhance the undergraduate experience and student learning.
