AUS students to experience being CEO for a day

American University of Sharjah's Article on CEO for a Day and their finalist students.




According to Odgers Berndtson Middle East, this initiative is a pivotal stepping stone for students with the confidence, drive and ambition to be leaders of the future. Each student will have the opportunity to probe the knowledge of their CEOs and find out the intricate workings of a company and how they excel. For those who wish to start their own businesses, this will be their chance to gain advice from CEOs as to what requirements are needed to be a leader, start a company, develop a team or successfully obtain funding.

AUS Chancellor, Björn Kjerfve is delighted to see AUS so well represented in the finals. He says:

"We are enormously proud that so many of the finalists in the CEOX1Day challenge are currently studying at AUS. Having half of the finalists coming from AUS demonstrates the quality of the students we have here, and the ambition of our students to make an impact in the business world. AUS focuses on giving its students the skills and experience they need to be successful in the world of work, and this competition is an excellent way to introduce students to the capabilities and knowledge that they will need to strive in their future careers."
