AUS students take part in World Business Dialogue held in Cologne
Three students from the Student Leadership Program participated in the 20th World Business Dialogue held in Cologne, Germany, March 7-10. This year's topic was "Facing Change: Transforming Industries for Tomorrow."
"Participating in the 20th World Business Dialogue was an incomparable and unforgettable experience," said Mohamad Daher, a senior electrical engineering major. "The workshops, company sessions and panels during this conference enhanced my knowledge about changes the fields of business and science will face in the future. This experience also gave me the opportunity to get in contact with CEOs of reputable organizations and businesses. Basically, it was a learning opportunity from a new perspective and seeking knowledge through interactive panel discussions. Most importantly, I learned that in order to be innovative and to step forward, one has to be resilient and has to 'face change," he added.
The World Business Dialogue creates a platform to foster communication between business leaders, professionals and students. The main topic of facing change was analyzed and explored through multifaceted sessions and workshops with various subjects such as artificial intelligence, transformation in transportation and energy and sustainability.
"The Student Leadership Program has been participating in the World Business Dialogue since 2012. Every year, our students come back with unparalleled knowledge experience and networking," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
"The topic of the conference changes every year to discuss a contemporary business issue by bringing experts and students together. The topic this year was very important as organizations and firms constantly change and adapt their processes and services to survive in our volatile and ever-changing economies and societies," added Dr. Al Shehhi.
