CSCLeaders for Students programme
Students with leadership ambitions studying in Dubai are getting a helping hand from DP World as it joins forces with the international leadership development programme organisation Common Purpose to host a "CSCLeaders for Students"
It is the second year that DP World has hosted the event. More than 95 students from 14 countries, drawn from universities across the UAE, are taking part in the four-day programme from April 6th - 9th with Hult International Business School as host University Partner.
This year's challenge is What makes a city smart? Over four days, students are expected to take what they have learned and formulate practical solutions that will have a positive impact on Dubai.
At the end of the programme, students will be presenting their ideas and the projects they have been working on during the event to a panel of experts including academics, business leaders and DP World senior management.
Mohammed Sharaf, Group CEO, DP World, said, "We are hosting this event for the second year running as part of our commitment to help young talent hone their skills and equip them to become the leaders of the future. Despite the diversity of our cultures and backgrounds, we all share common bonds." "We are delighted to partner with Common Purpose in this major programme and hope that the students benefit from the direct interaction with experts and business leaders." Julia Middleton, Chief Executive of Common Purpose, said, "In cities such as Dubai, where students from all over the world congregate for their higher education, there is a huge opportunity to connect these global leaders of the future and help them to develop Cultural Intelligence - the ability to cross divides and thrive in multiple cultures. By taking students off campus and into the city, CSCLeaders for Students helps them feel more responsible for the place they are studying in and build the global networks they need to create positive change."
