The trek exceeded my expectations in exposing me to business in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi, making a career in the UAE seems all the more feasible a career option for me. I hadn’t expected to find such a rich working environment for expats in Dubai that offers equally exciting opportunities to the United States,” -Olivia Clink (AB’17)
