Dr. Javid Ahmad Qaem's father was a Doktor. Qaem earned an executive master’s degree in management from Preston University of Pakistan and his M.D. at Kabul Medical University.  Qaem said he decided to interrupt his already successful career to seek a Fulbright because “the Fulbright is a prestigious scholarship. When he finishes his degree program at ASU, Qaem returned to Afghanistan, most likely to work in Kabul, where his parents and two brothers now live (his sister lives in the United States). He had never heard of Arizona State University (ASU) , and had no idea what Arizona was like, he quickly started doing research on what to expect when he arrived in January 2010 to begin studying for a master’s degree in public administration. Qaem, a development and project management specialist, possesses two master’s degrees; one in public administration and policy from Arizona State University (2010-2012) and the second in management of development from Turin University, Italy.(2014-2015)
