AUS students participate in SCCI Leadership and Entrepreneurship Series
Around 15 students from the AUS Student leadership Program (SLP) participated in the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry's (SCCI) Leadership and Entrepreneurship Series held March 6, 2017 at the SCCI headquarters in Sharjah. This event focused on leadership, entrepreneurship and capacity building of the UAE youth with emphasis on the topic "Our Youth I Our Future: Business Global and Best Practices in the UAE."
Rahsi Shafana, a junior majoring in economics, said, "The Leadership and Entrepreneurship Series was a great initiative to bring together students from across the region, business leaders and university representatives to discuss the issue of youth unemployment and employability, and how to make a collective effort to do something about the issue. It was great to hear from the various speakers, and understand the issue from their perspectives."
"We are delighted that our students benefited from this opportunity. The topic of leadership and entrepreneurship is of great interest to them, and taking part in this series also shed light on a common concern among students, which is unemployment," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
