SLP students take part in World Business Dialogue 2016
Three students from the Office of Student Affairs' Student Leadership Program (SLP) at American University of Sharjah (AUS) participated in the 19th World Business Dialogue 2016 held in Cologne, Germany from March 16-19, 2016.
The World Business Dialogue is considered one of the most important discussion platforms in Europe. It is the place to discuss, act and interact with companies, speakers, and students from all over the world. The World Business Dialogue aims to form intelligent, self-sufficient world citizens, equipping them with long-term connections all over the world and giving them room to be creative and truly innovative. This year's topic was "Globalization: Disrupted?" The convention discussed globalization changes in the forthcoming years and which challenges need to be solved by economic operators.
The participating students were Nasser Anwahi, majoring in international studies; Mohamed Chazi, majoring in industrial engineering; and Abdalla Lootah, majoring in finance. "The World Business Dialogue was such an inspirational experience for me. The open discussions helped me understand how the world perceives the Middle East and the Arab region. This trip was an amazing experience and I hope to continue to participate in other SLP events," said Abdalla Lootah.
"The World Business Dialogue was a very interesting and insightful event. The speakers were knowledgeable and proved to be experts in their fields. Also, the atmosphere was extremely positive. It was indeed a fantastic experience that I will not forget," said Mohamed Chazi.
"Another fruitful experience for our students at the World Business Dialogue 2016. The convention exposed students to excellent panel discussions and wonderful speakers. It also allowed them to exchange ideas on the topic 'Globalization: Disrupted?' and put forth the challenges ahead to solve major world issues. A job well done to our students who did exceptionally well at the conference," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
