STUDENT TESTIMONIAL

 

Fouzana feroze

”Think global, not local” was only an expression to me before I started studying at RIT Dubai. My professors trained me to develop independent and creative thoughts and now I am fully capable of applying this principle. Learning about different cultures and gaining the ability to be creative and working well in a dynamic environment made me an effective leader and a resourceful innovator.”
