AUS secures honorable mention at BUMUN 2016
Four students from the AUS Student Leadership Program participated in the 12th Bahrain Universities Model United Nations (BUMUN 2016) on November 26-27 in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain.
BUMUN is a Model United Nations mainly for university students in the GCC. It is a simulation education activity which focuses on civics, communications, globalization and multilateral diplomacy. Students take on roles as foreign diplomats and participate in a simulated session of an intergovernmental organization (IGO). They research a particular country within a selected committee and topic, take on a role as a diplomat, investigate international issues, and eventually pass resolutions for current global conflicts.
Alreem Al Ammari, a senior student majoring in business management who secured an Honorable Mention at BUMUN said, "BUMUN helped me develop my communication skills. Working and negotiating in a committee of at least 80 other delegates from all around the world was not easy at all, but it did teach me a lot. It is definitely an experience that will enhance my career."
"Let me take this opportunity to thank the UAE General Authority of Youth and Sports Welfare for their generosity in sponsoring our students to attend BUMUN. It is the seventh time our Student Leadership Program students have attended BUMUN; certainly a great platform to learn diplomacy skills, art of speech and negation abilities. In addition, BUMUN is a great exercise in research, public speaking and teamwork skills that students need throughout their academic studies and future careers," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
