Students from Abu Dhabi University took seminars on international business management at GWSB this week through a first-ever study-abroad program organized by their school.

The 19 students in the immersive program, which was organized in collaboration with GW and Georgetown University, attended lectures and seminars, and visited international companies and institutions such as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Library of Congress, after a course of study at home.

The U.S. portion of the trip concludes this week. It’s designed to prepare students to assess the economic, social, political, and cultural issues that result from globalization, and the impact of such forces on international business firms.

Nabil Ibrahim, the university’s chancellor, said that the opportunity to collaborate with GW and Georgetown “solidifies ADU’s continuous efforts of developing and exploring new areas of cooperation with world-renowned academic institutions in the field of education, scientific research and student exchange. “
