Eight ICMS property and hospitality students explored Abu Dhabi and Dubai in September 2015, to gain insights into the property industry in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
John Powrie, the Academic Program Coordinator for Property and Sports Management and organiser of the tour, said it was a fantastic cultural experience and an opportunity for students to compare and contrast the way the property industry operates in the UAE to Australia.
“Everyday was a highlight, with an incredible new experience. Each day was packed with ‘wow’ factor.
“There was a focus on ‘doing’ rather than taking notes – it was a practical learning experience. All students commented on the invaluable information they had learnt from briefings, project tasks, interviewing experts and site visits,” said John.
“This tour experience was so intense it will leave a permanent legacy for attendants’ future property careers. They have been given a unique insight into doing business in the Middle East in the property industry.”
