American business students would learn a great deal from DP World’s business model, which is based on efficiency and professionalism.  That’s the conclusion from a group of academics and scholars from some of America’s leading universities who visited DP World Head Office on January 5 and toured the massive Jebel Ali port facility.  

The delegation plans to send students from their institutions to learn from the global port operator. They were received and accompanied by Feras Dahlan, Government and Business Relations Manager, DP World. The visitors presented a certificate in appreciation of DP World’s support for the 2011 Middle East North Africa Faculty Development in International Business Program, a two-week study tour as part of faculty development programs offered by the Centres for International Business Education and Research (CIBER). The visiting delegation included representatives from the US Department of Education, Brigham Young University, Temple University, University of Colorado and University of South Carolina.
