SHU Sponsoring Dubai Study Tour

Trip Scheduled from Nov. 22-30

Siena Heights University is sponsoring a study tour to the Middle Eastern country of Dubai from Nov. 22-Nov. 30.


The tour’s focus will showcase the accomplishments of creat­ing a world-class city in an unlikely locale. Highlighted will be several of the major attractions and projects, including Dubai Chairy City, Dubai University City, Dubai Financial Sector, Healthcare City, Internet and Media Cities, Jumeriah Mosque, Palm Island, property developments, hotels and tourism sites.


A secondary purpose will be to dispel the many myths associated with the Arab world. Interviews will be conducted with locale emiraties and expatriates working and living in Dubai. Those who attend the tour will have the experience of interacting with local people.


Tentative cost is $2,500 and includes airfare, lodging, breakfast and all tours.
