BA Honours Business Management (General)

When I joined Middlesex University Dubai, I was quite anxious and curious at the same time. But within the first two weeks it already felt like a second home, and it was the environment, the teachers, the staff from all the different departments that were so welcoming and willing to help me with questions or any difficulties I might face. And most importantly the students from different cultures, nationalities, and backgrounds which developed a genuinely multicultural and inclusive atmosphere. The university's dedication to diversity and inclusion generated a sense of togetherness and belonging, which improved my learning experience overall.
