Hult International Business School opens ultramodern campus in Dubai

United Arab Emirates: Saturday, October 06 - 2012 @ 13:54

Just across from the world-famous Palm Islands and only a short journey from Dubai’s Knowledge Village and Media City, the 30,000 sq. ft.

campus was designed to put students at the forefront of Dubai’s technology boom, in a ‘free zone’ where networking, developing ideas and nurturing new start-ups are a part of everyday life.

Graduate students studying at the Fiona Kennedy-designed campus – which counts Microsoft, the BBC, GE, Cisco and HP among its neighbors – will also benefit from being able to live and socialize in the most vibrant part of the city.

Trendy, newly built apartments are plentiful, and Dubai’s buzzing nightlife scene makes it easy for students to unwind with their new classmates.

Hult’s Dubai campus is already one of the most diverse in the region, with an accomplished student body comprised of more than 55 nationalities.

Having moved from its first campus in Dubai’s Academic City to a larger, more central location, Hult will this year enroll more than 300 new students across its respected MBA, Executive MBA and Master of International Business courses.

Robert Lillicrapp, who has worked with Hult for the last 12 years, was recently appointed executive director. “Our new home in Dubai has so much to offer, from sleek architecture and first-rate classroom technology to lively student extracurricular activities,” he said.

“It’s in a truly spectacular location, and one that connects us with global leaders in the fields of finance, logistics, shipping and aviation,” he added.

Like Hult’s other campuses – in Boston, San Francisco, London and Shanghai – Dubai regularly hosts keynote speeches by visionaries from the world of business and beyond. Most recently the UAE’s first female filmmaker, Nayla Al Khaja, delivered an impassioned speech about overcoming cultural challenges to follow a lifelong dream.
