Actually Sheikh Maktoum has attended some courses at Harvard University. The press does not aways talk about everything. Discretion is asked sometimes.

Maybe Sheikh Hamdan has finished his own schooling and we donīt know.....Maybe you can also have collected a great deal of knowledge, without possessing a degree. Perhaps Sheikh Hamdan is still working on a thesis - after all, he has a lot schedules for important meetings which we have not. Or maybe we learn throughout our lives constantly and we reached a final degree with our death only .... Many options on many ways ...
Or simply: We do not know Sheikh Hamdans reasons for the postponement of a degree. Really, I doubt that anyone here knows his reasons - except himself.

Yup! I agree completely with you.
I think that only Sh. Hamdan and his own family knows the reason why he didn't get his degree. As i also said before, there are many options as to why he didn't go any further in his studies. People change their minds constantly about what and where they want to be in life; i myself have seen this quite frequent. Thanks for letting me know that the Deputy Ruler comes 2nd and Crown Prince 3rd. Very interesting. I assume that Sh. Maktoum must be extremely intelligent. I can totally see him as a Dubai Ruler in the future.

Well,I have to agree with some points-it is different if you have attended a lecture or you studied four years full time (or studied and worked at the same time)-i have also listened to a course at Yale university but I would find it ridiculous to include it in my CV-even though I have learnt a lot by listening to that course.
Sheikh Maktoum DID finish most of his studies-different than his brother Hamdan (sorry,I like him a lot,but he does not pursue his studies as much as his other hobbies or endurance riding) and other Crown Princes (Norway,Belgium,Spain,Japan,Sweden,UK) do have a better formal education.This does not mean he is less intelligent or able but it IS a difference wheter you have finished a hard and difficult study and EARNED your degree (Sheikh Mohammed from Qatar is quite academic and a role model in this regard) or you attended a few courses/lecture/months.
Going back to endurance:Wouldnīt you laugh out loud if I told you "Yes,I won a championship" and than you find out I only rode my horse for one hour and quit?Bloating up you CV with skills or degrees you havenīt got looks worse to me than not having any, because it gives the impression you are just a pretender.
Graduating from a military academy is in my eyes just as difficult or challenging as an undergraduate degree-in Austria at least it is not easily earned.
Princess Haya and Sheikh Mohammed have earned fine degrees from very prestigious universities and I expect they encourage their children to do the same.

Just for the sake of completeness I believe that Sheikha Maryam and Sheikha Mahra (American University of Dubai (AUD))have also earned university degrees.

I think, thats not correct. Sheikha Mahra is only 19 years old and Sheikha Maryam is just been 21 years. I think, if both attend university with hard work - then currently studying but not finished yet.

In her position, she has the opportunity to orate more often in her life than we will do it.

All other European Crown Princes/Princess have earned their degrees in respectfully great/difficult schools. Where they had to work hard in order to earn their degree. It was just in the news the other day, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is going back to University to educate herself more about global warming and the environment. Since this is an issue that is happening before our own eyes. Crown Prince Frederick of Denmark got his degree from Harvard, US. I don't have time to state all the others but you get the point. It's so important in their position to be well educated and to have a deep knowledge and understanding of what is going on in our world today. I think that just winning endurance cups, showing up in meeting with Dad won't make the cut. (No offense)
There's gotta be a deeper knowledge than that. Sure all these things help, but it doesn't comprise of everything that is needed to be a solid future Ruler. Honestly,it would be a great idea IF Sh. Hamdan took some time off and went back to school to get his degree and further his knowledge abit more. I think it would help him greatly in the present and in the future.

Definitely I agree with you. Nevertheless Sheikh Hamdan can have absorbed a lot of knowledge, even though hitherto he has had no time to achieve a proper degree. Right?

Well,thatīs certainly true but Iīm sure he will receive more respect by foreign dignitaries IF he had a degree that proofs his knowledge and understanding.If Hamdan applied for a job in Austria he would not even get a minor managing post,let alone be the most important head of state (Dubai in this case) which he will be when his father is gone.
Other crown princes and princesses also had a full workload and managed to graduate with degree or some even did more than one.Most of them also did military training-also the ladies,namely CP Victoria,who is such a remarkable woman in any way & highly educated and CP Mary of Denmark.

I donīt blame anyone for not wanting to study at university,itīs alright if you prefer to be an artist,athlete,businessman,or do charity etc. but if you have an important post with immense responsibility you need a proper education.

I agree with you. A proper education is needed if someone wants to be the a good and wise Ruler of a state today. That would be welcomed as a real signal to the young generation in UAE, to give their best performance and to strive for higher knowledge. But I am sure that Sheikh Hamdan has expanded his knowledge every day. Maybe a university degree will be added in the future.

I think, comparisons with European royalty is difficult because European royal families perceive only a representative role and do not have sole power to govern a state.

Well,in this case he would especially need good education because he has much more responsibility than European monarchs-as you correctly said they are just figureheads but not ruling monarchs.So in a way their most important job is to represent their country,look good&smile,produce an heir,shake a lot of hands &hold speeches and support charitable causes.(Just a simplification,but it sums up the most significant roles of todayīs royals in Europe)while on the other hand in UAE the sheikhs do have real power and can implement their vision and ideas for their country.

But hey,I just asked for some information about Sheikh Maktoumīs hobbies & interests and complimented him on his education,I didnīt want to start off a discussion.

Thatīs true,I only wish people would not take everything so personal and get too emotional when we are discussing a topic.An informative discourse where everyone can share their opinion and knowledge is good just like hearing differing points of view or concepts of society with an open mind is widening our horizon.It would be boring if we all had the same mind,than we would not need to talk at all.

Of course. Different points of view or concepts of society extend our personal thoughts and open up the horizon. Without a small pinch of emotions the vitality will be missing in a discussion. Emotional feelings characterize and define us as human. If we respecting the opinions of others and respond in an appropriate manner, then all will be fine.

Actually that was her grauation you are here talking about shiekha Maryam the first. But not from AUD she graduated from Zayed's uni in Abu Dhabi
Shiekha Manal graduated as well from college.
And Imanmajed she does not the opportunity to orate more often it was her actuale graduation.
I think you have mistaken her with sh.Marayam 2nd who has not graduated from college.

The person I meant from beginning was Sheikha Maryam, the daughter of Sheikha Hind. So maybe it was a misunderstanding between all of us, because we have not made ​​it clear first which of the two we mean.
Quote:

I wrote, it in my post # 35 before!

But in my list there I had forgotten Sheikha Maryam, the first, daughter of the Maroccan lady and full sibling of Sheikh Majid. Sheikha Maryam, the first, graduated from Zayed's University in Abu Dhabi at 2011. Do you know in which field of science she graduated?

-Sheikha Maryam the first from Zayed's uni in Abu Dhabi -graduated
-Sheikha Manal-graduated

-Sheikha Mahra-still studying at American University of Dubai (AUD)
