BSc Economics

“The careers service is amazing! Coming to Dubai, I wasn’t sure how many opportunities I’d have to try out internships in various fields, but in just my first year I’ve taken part in two internships. Both were virtual internships with a British company called Evolve, and another called Gulf for Good, based in the UAE. Working virtually allowed me to work from anywhere and maintain contact with the rest of the team and the company through social media and virtual meeting apps.”
