American University of Sharjah hosts panel discussion on economics at career forum
The panel discussions were held under the theme of "Global Economic Challenges: Current Impact and Consequences for the Job Market” and examined global and regional economic challenges. Topics of the panels included professional career choice and development in family firms, digital revolution, future economies and issues related to globalization.
"The forum is one of AUS's flagship events as it connects both academia and aspects of academe with the world of business,” Leland Blank, interim provost and chief academic officer at AUS, said.
Blank said higher education is not just about classrooms and laboratories, but also about experiencing the real world, seeing what’s happening in business and understanding globalization.
"This is a very special forum where discussions that happen today in addition to tomorrow's career fair, offer opportunities for students, members and employers to get together, one on one, make plans and look at career opportunities," Blank said.
