UAS teams with Hult for business school action project
The Middle East headquarters of trip support specialist UAS International and Hult International Business School in Dubai are teaming up for the Master of International Business (MIB) 2015 Dubai Action Project.
Cofounders and executive management of UAS, Omar Hosari and Mohammed Husary, are alumni of Hult and the collaboration is part of the company’s CSR efforts.
The Dubai Action Project will see five groups of six students compete to solve a business case. The project will take a total of six weeks and include extensive research, planning and documenting.
Over the course of the autumn, UAS will review the students’ work and name the project that best displays an informed understanding and application of strategic marketing. UAS will also make a donation of $20,000 USD towards the school’s scholarship fund.
“We’re all about innovation and creativity- we’re really looking forward to what these young bright business minds come up with and how we can use it,” said Omar Hosari, UAS CEO. (Pictured left)
Established in 2000, UAS has recently seen tremendous global expansion. This continental investment and enhancement of services has significantly increased UAS’ global network of connectivity and today, UAS has headquarters in Houston, Johannesburg, Hong Kong and Dubai, regional offices in Lagos, Nairobi, Beijing and New Delhi and ground presence in 37 countries.
This commitment to education isn’t a new one, the company already supports the Academic Global Immersion Program with the University of San Francisco and the International Operators Scholarship program as partners of NBAA.
The Master of International Business is one of Hult’s most in demand courses. MIB students acquire practical business knowledge through hands-on projects in a totally multicultural environment. This sees students develop increased cross-cultural understanding, problem solving skills and creativity.
Both Hult and UAS are defined by their multiculturalism and all-encompassing outlooks that distinguishes them within their individual industries. Hult is famed for its truly international nature- attracting students from every continent and ethnicity. Similarly, the enormous benefits of cultural diversity has long been recognized and deemed essential
by UAS whose global team hail from 50 nationalities and speak over 42 languages. Mohammed Husary (pictured left) said that in today’s business and aviation industries, multiculturalism is an enormous advantage when creating the best solutions for multinational companies and international clients.
“A broad and holistic mix of ideas is more conducive to meeting client demands in the backdrop of a world where business etiquette and priorities changes significantly from place to place. This realization and the utilization of this advantage can be seen within the diverse and multicultural student body of Hult and the global staff of UAS,” Husary said.
