AUS Finance Club visits New York
A group of students from the Finance Club at American University of Sharjah (AUS) returned from an exciting educational trip to New York organized by the Office of Student Affairs' Student Development and Organization Department from April 1-6.
During the five-day stay in New York, the students had the opportunity to visit financial sites like the Federal Reserve Bank, the Museum of Finance and the World Financial Center. The trip combined educational and entertaining tours including a visit to the United Nations headquarters where they had the chance to sit in the UN General Assembly and UN Security Council rooms and be informed about the countries' representatives and the types of meetings held. Students also visited other popular sites including the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.
"The event was an international educational trip designed to provide students with the opportunity to gain educational experiences that augment their understanding and practical knowledge "said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, who led the group.
"A similar study tour was made to Turkey by the American Society of Civil Engineers Club in January. Since then, the program has gained popularity among the student body and many students have shown interest in taking part in such international educational tours," she added.
According to Asma Al Rafi, vice president of the Finance Club, "From checking out where all the big financial and political decisions are made to entertaining ourselves in the city that never sleeps, I experienced a trip of a lifetime. What made it all the more enjoyable was the group I was with; we became a family bonded by lovely memories."
The delegation comprised students majoring in finance and related majors and two supervisors.
