ALHOSN University, joined the inaugural UAE Lead – Youth Leadership Congress as part of NAJAH 2011, the 5th edition of the UAE’s leading annual exhibition on higher education, training and careers, which ran from October 18 to 20, 2011 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
During the Congress, ALHOSN was on the lookout for leadership opportunities for its students and for ways in which the university could further support their personal and professional growth. A delegation of ALHOSN students received career assessments from AIESEC, the world’s largest student-run organization.

“We desire a bright future for our students–which is exactly what NAJAH promises as the leading education, training and career event in the country. Leadership is one of the qualities we strive to bring out in our students, and this is why we are very excited over the new insights to be provided by this year’s inaugural UAE Lead – Youth Leadership Congress. And as usual, NAJAH will be a platform for ALHOSN University to showcase its competitive programs and share its vision of global knowledge with local vision with prospective students,” said Prof. Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor and CEO, ALHOSN University.
