Join us for an educational travel experience that is truly unique and eye opening. If you are interested an exceptional student trip to a city that is unlike any other city, join us for a "travel for education" program in Dubai.
Dubai is made up of a mixture of the ancient and the ultra modern, having transformed from a quiet trading post to one of the most buzzing and cosmopolitan cities in the world in under half a century. Some people call it the "City of Gold". Dubai's rapidly developing metropolis is home to some of the world's most amazing sights including: the Burj Al Arab, the world's tallest hotel, Jumeirah Mosque, Palm Jumeirah, Etisalat Tower 2, Jumeirah Beach Residence, American University in Dubai, & the Sheikh Zayed Road.
Dubai has a diverse and multicultural society. The city's cultural imprint as a small, ethnically homogenous pearling community was changed with the arrival of other ethnic groups and nationals - first by the Iranians in the early 1900s, and later by Indians and Pakistanis in the 1960s. Dubai has been criticized for perpetuating a class-based society, where migrant workers are in the lower classes. Despite the diversity of the population, only minor and infrequent episodes of ethnic tensions, primarily between expatriates, have been reported in the city.
The rich history, the variety of ethnic groups, the diverse cuisines, the economy, the culture, and the governance and politics of this most populous city of the United Arab Emirates makes Dubai an interesting study for any group who is interested in experiencing modern changes in ancient world populations and their effect on global stability.
Because of its proximity to India, Dubai can easily be combined with and educational travel program to India. Experiencing both areas would truly be a unique travel opportunity.
The "Dubai Spectacle"…what an interesting study for business students!
Our educational travel programs to Dubai offer student trips that are remarkably informative and students will experience and learn about of a very unique economy.
Dubai's economy is quite controversial. According to Friedman, Dubai is "where we should want the Arab world to go," a place that, though "not without its warts," embodies the narrative of globalization as progress.
From the other side, Mike Davis tells us that Dubai is no model at all. Rather, it is a horror show, exemplifying the coarseness of hyper-capitalism.
All in all, an educational travel experience to Dubai is guaranteed to produce exciting results.
