London Business School students tour Middle East
Students of London Business School recently visited Dubai in order to gain a better perspective on the business environment in the Middle East, and to investigate career opportunities in Dubai.
The trip, organized by the Middle East Club with the support of the Middle East Regional Advisory Board (RAB), provided an opportunity to meet with companies operating in the region for presentations of business models and operating policies in the region, as well as providing a chance to discuss career options.
Ten students took advantage of the opportunity and spent four days in Dubai. They held meetings with companies including Nestlé, Emirates Bank and Dubai Internet City (DIC) as well as attending events organized by London Business School Alumni in the area.
The Middle East Club is a student-run club at London Business School. Its aim is to bridge the Middle Eastern culture with all other cultures within the London Business School Community.
The Middle East Clubs involves students from all London Business School degree programs in business and cultural club events to enhance their knowledge of the Middle East marketplace and culture. The Club also helps students with career placement in the Middle East and seeks to increase Middle Eastern students enrolment in London Business School.
There are seven Regional Advisory Boards in key geographical locations around the world—the UK, Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa—comprising over 100 senior corporate figures who act as ambassadors and advisors for the school.
London Business School is the graduate school of business at the University of London. Founded in 1965, the School this year graduated 600 MBAs, MScs, Masters in Finance and PhDs from 57 countries. With 80 percent of the students and 70 percent of the faculty being non-British, London Business School is the most international institution of higher education in the United Kingdom. — (menareport.com)
