Student's conceptual skills, creativity and soft skills were developed through the competition's exercises.

I am glad our students emerged successful at our first participation in the management fest. I congratulate our students for their achievements and thank the Student Council for its initiative in participating in this event," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
