Meet Alumnus Roudi Soubra

A great success of our Alumnus  Roudi Soubra, a 2003 Graduate from Schiller International University – London Campus!

Master developer Nakheel’s hotel at Ibn Battuta Mall has been crowned 3-star Hotel of the Year at the 2017 Middle East Hospitality Excellence Awards.

The 372-room Premier Inn, which opened just over a year ago, scooped the top prize in its category at the 3rd Middle East Hospitality Excellence Awards ceremony, held in Dubai. It beat five other hotels to claim the award.

Roudi Soubra, now a General Manager, Premier Inn Ibn Battuta Mall, added:

“Premier Inn Ibn Battuta Mall offers excellent facilities in a convenient location. This, combined with Premier Inn’s enviable reputation, adds up to a great guest experience to which our customers return time and time again. We have enjoyed close to 90 per cent occupancy since we opened and this is set to further increase as we enter the peak travel season. We are delighted to have taken home the top prize in our category at this year’s Hospitality Excellence Awards.”

Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta is directly connected to the mall and the Ibn Battuta Metro station. Hotel facilities include an all-day restaurant, Costa coffee shop, swimming pool, gym and business centre with meeting and conference rooms. Guests can also enjoy free, 24-hour Wi-Fi access. Guests include business and leisure travellers, with many returning regularly and a few even living in the hotel since it opened last October.

The hotel is one of 17 in Nakheel’s AED 5 billion hospitality expansion, under which 6,000 rooms and hotel apartments will be delivered across Dubai. Premier Inn is also the operating partner for a Nakheel hotel at Dragon City, due to open in 2018.

A second Nakheel hotel at Ibn Battuta Mall is also under construction.

Congratulations, Roudi!

Meet our Alumni – Borja Granzow

 

Borja Granzow, a Schiller Madrid Alumni, recently came by the university and we had the opportunity to ask him what was his experience was like here at Schiller International University. Let us read it from his own words:

“Firstly, attending Schiller was a boost, not only on my academic life, but also in my personal life. One of the most distinct ways Schiller has helped me in, would be in the International education that they provided. As it was the first time in my life that I was surrounded by so many nationalities and cultures all over the world. And being able to learn and adapt to each one of them, which has helped me in my job on a daily basis, as I worked with different nationalities and cultures every day.

After finishing at Schiller I was hired by a Spanish company, where I’ve been working for the last two years, in three different cities, Madrid, Lima and Santiago de Chile. The company I work for is a Freight forwarder , in which I have worked as a Logistics Operator. We arrange customs and international transportation of goods for companies imports and exports with a worldwide presence.

Surely, the greatest benefit of an international career is the possibility to learn about different cultures of people that are the same as you no matter your status or race and learning to work and adapt to them. Also , having the possibility to adapt yourself in that country in the future. “

Amazon Internship

One of our recent International Business Students, Christian Corcuera, has just begun his internship at amazon.es . He recently came by the Madrid campus in order to give us the inside scoop of what his experience has been so far. Let’s see what Christian has to say:

“Four years ago I started my very first class at Schiller’s Madrid campus. During the entirety of my Bachelor’s degree I have had the opportunity to be at both Madrid and Heidelberg campuses. During my experience at Schiller I have learned so much more than I ever thought I would. The diverse student body, the helpful professors, that even become your friends, really make a difference. The small class sizes  helped me to  focus and go more in depth with the  course material.

To a great extent, these four years at Schiller have helped me to become a better person. All of the knowledge I have gained, and the ability to study one class per month have helped me to truly understand each class and become a master of each subject. I have always wanted to make a difference and Schiller international University has given me the tools I need to get into a great company where I can apply all of the skills I acquired into my daily tasks with complete confidence.

I am looking forward to all of the practical and hands-on experience I will be able to gain during my time at amazon.es
