Career Day at Swans International School in Marbella

Last Friday, for the first time and as only university, MIUC was invited to participate in the Career Day at Swans International School in Marbella. The event was organised by the Head of Business Department Chris French and Head of Communications Shahed Kavousi.

MIUC spent the morning in direct communication with Swan´s pupils. Professor of Economics Ming Jin and Patricia Skorsetz from Administration shared their points of view and experiences working in a university. While Ming Jin spoke enthusiastically and convincingly about the career steps necessary to becoming a professor and academic researcher in economics, Patricia provided the pupils with the answers to their queries concerning the vocation of an administrator and its essential role within a university. Pupils also gained insight into the different options available to them at MIUC, should they decide to pursue a University education.
