Abu-Ghazaleh: Creative Education is the Source of Future Wealth Building

AMMAN - HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh said that the foundation of success is built on constant change and the world is currently undergoing a radical transformation towards the world of knowledge which should be embraced.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh addressed students at the University of Petra (UOP) in a lecture entitled “Creative Education is the Only Means to make Wealth in the Future”, organized by the UOP Dialogue Committee under the patronage of University President Dr. Marwan Mullah and attended by Higher Chancellor Dr. Adnan Badran, saying that “the world is shifting from the civil state to the creativity and inventions state which is evidenced in the existence of creative and innovative corporations in the world of knowledge whose magnitude is larger than the Arab economy.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh addressed the students adding, “You are the most capable individuals to lead change. Creativity doesn’t mean coming up with a new invention, it could be the improvement of something that already exists, this is the path for wealth, future, prosperity and economic growth,” noting that the world is heading towards a new era characterized by Artificial Intelligence and what we witness today is the foundational stage to set up the required infrastructure for that world.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh affirmed that success in the real world is achieved through the individual’s goals  whereby he becomes devoted to serving his homeland and nation, noting that proficiency and efforts are not sufficient, saying ‘whoever aims to success should not wait for an opportunity but  has to make one’.

Moreover, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh extended gratitude to the management of the University for the invitation and for the opportunity to meet the students who represent the generation of the future armed with science and knowledge.

For his part, Dean of the Faculty of Mass Communication at the University Dr. Tayseer Abu Arja highly praised Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh’s efforts saying, “Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh is a role model of a self-made personality and represents a national-global success story who achieved and still achieves consecutive successes”.

Meanwhile, in the presence of Deans, professors and students, Dr. Badran presented the University’s Honorary Shield to Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh in recognition of his outstanding achievements and efforts on the national, regional and international levels.
