Dr.Yousef Al Assaf commented: “We are excited about further building on our relationship with Smart Dubai and helping develop both individual leaders and Dubai as whole through close cooperation, education and research. RIT Dubai has a strong remit to help drive the technical, educational and social development of Dubai and this agreement with Smart Dubai is an obvious continuation of this. Smart Dubai have always been heavily involved in our Master of City Science degree, and this new program and joint research activities are the next step in helping drive the human and technical capital agenda of Dubai.'

Through this program the Smart Dubai Office and RIT aim to help students in a number of ways:
•    Understand the scientifi¬c and practical notions of happiness in a professional environment.
•    Understand how to evaluate and assess an organization in terms of individual and corporate happiness and its related constructs.

•    Create a Corporate Happiness Strategic Plan for their organization. 
•    Become an expert in current best practices of corporate happiness measures in both the UAE and beyond. 

The program consists of six modules and lasts for five months, where classes are only held during 3 days each month.
