CCE Develops Workshop for NUKS-USA Conference

The Center for Continuing Education (CCE) at the American University of Kuwait has developed a workshop, "Campus to Corporate" that was facilitated in partnership with Burgan Bank at the 32nd Conference of the National Union of Kuwaiti Students - USA Branch (NUKS-USA) on 27 November, 2015. Both Burgan Bank and AUK are part of the KIPCO Group, which supported the conference for the fifth consecutive year as a Platinum Sponsor.

The workshop was designed to train potential Kuwaiti graduates from US universities to make a smooth transition from the campus to corporate settings, while embodying interpersonal skills that are required to succeed in their careers. Students practiced adapting to a professional setting, be mindful of their body language during meetings, presentations and interviews, and how to recruit their strongest attributes in order to be productive employees.

Talah Al Abdulaaly and Jasem Sabeeh Abul, Organizational Development Officers, Burgan Bank, presented the workshop; while Eman M. Al Awadhi, Group Communications Director, KIPCO delivered a motivational speech to the students. The workshop concluded with a ceremony, in which participating students received a certificate of completion from CCE.

Course offerings are specifically tailored to meet the needs of their clients, whether they are independent groups or corporations.
