Emirates NBD, the leading banking group in the region, announced today the launch of a new partnership agreement with Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University (HBMeU), to provide a convenient solution for tuition fee payments. Students can now pay their fees in any of Emirates NBD’s 131 Cash Deposit Machines(CDMs).
Account holders of the bank can additionally make payments online via BankNet, the bank?s state-of-the-art internet banking portal.
Under the patronage and presidency of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, the HBMeU is the first e-Learning institution to be licensed and recognised by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the United Arab Emirates, and among a few in the region.
“Today’s agreement is part of our drive to partner with key national institutions and government bodies to provide easy payment solutions for a wide range of services,” said Abdulelah AlKindy, General Manager Retail Banking, Emirates NBD.
“It is also in line with Emirates NBD’s commitment to supporting further education in the UAE. We identified a need for an easier payment option for the university’s distance-learning students,” he commented.
“This new service replaces the need for students to have to visit the campus administration office in person, during specific times and on certain days of the week. Now students can save valuable time by making tuition fee payments at their own convenience, 24 hours a day.”
Dr. Ibrahim Mahmood Bin Abdulrahman, Vice Chancellor HBMeU, commented: “Our mission is to provide a first-class educational experience for our students through our advanced e-learning programmes and comprehensive learner-support services. Through leveraging technology, this simple payment option from Emirates NBD will ease life for e-learners and save valuable studying time. We believe this partnership with one of the country’s most popular banks will be well received by students.”
