SLP students take part in Alleem Business Congress
Twenty-four students from the AUS Office of Student Affairs' Student Leadership Program (SLP) participated in the Annual Alleem Business Congress on January 21, 2014 at Radisson Blu Hotel, Sharjah. The congress was organized by the Alleem Business Center.
The Alleem Business Congress was a unique forum for business leaders, professionals and students to meet and work together in order to develop business strategies and discuss contemporary economic, social and environmental challenges. The congress also addressed questions about learning from leadership in various industries and how to apply it to one's own business. It focused on sharing ideas and business concepts for growth and how this would help the participants to rethink the way they manage the workplace, discover new models to build productive work environments and gain competitive advantages.
"The congress hosted several key persons in business and academia who discussed the importance of project management, from where it first began during the Cold War till today, in countless fields that utilize project management to lead, control, plan and organize a team or for self-management," said Mina Mazin, a sophomore majoring in economics. "The speakers in the three concentrated sessions emphasized that management and leadership complement each other. Also, I learned about the methods in which one could initiate a project in context of its risks, challenges and goals. I am now aware that project management is a vital skill to execute tasks in the long run because it teaches individuals to sustain their true vision."
"The Student Leadership Program participates yearly in the Alleem Business Congress as we believe it is a significant platform for students to meet and interact with professionals in the field of leadership. This year, students got a chance to learn about real-life business cases analyzed by experts and based on the market's best practices. We thank Dr. Rashid Alleem for his continuous collaboration with the Student Leadership Program and look forward to future opportunities for our students," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
