What Our Students Say

Our students are our best advocates. It is one thing for a program to boast strong academics or strict requirements; it is another when your students become alumni who remain as enthusiastic about the program on graduation as they were on the day they began.

“The conference was a regional crisis and emergency management conference, held in Abu Dhabi between the 11th and 13th of January. The program included speeches, workshops and gala dinners. It was a great opportunity to meet experts in the field from around the world. While networking with speakers and attendees, I had the chance to speak to them about our program and many showed interest and took details of the program and persons of contacts.”
