Alumnus Roudi Soubra

Alumnus Roudi Soubra contributes to success of Premier Inn in Dubai

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!

Art Exhibition at the Paris Campus

 

Schiller International University is happy to announce a new art exhibition at its premises. English artist Oliver Bevan will be showing the essence of his last decade’s paintings exploring urban realism in its many forms and colors. The exhibition opens on January 19th and will run until March 17th 2018.

An illustrated talk will take place at the Marie du 1er arrondissement in Paris on January 18th at 6h30 pm.

Come to the opening and meet the artist at Schiller International Universiy’s Paris Campus on January 19th at 6h00 pm.

Oliver Bevan is an English artist born in Peterborough in 1941 and educated at Eton College. He studied painting at the Royal College of Art in London where he became strongly influenced by Op Art and in particular the work of Victor Vasarely.  Optical, geometric and kinetic art then served him well until the late 1970s when he moved to the Canada for a two-year teaching post at the University of Saskatchewan. By the time he returned to London in 1979 he had abandoned abstract art in favor of  figurative realism and urban realism. He has been living in the south of France for the last 17 years and has developed and perfected his style.

 

Protocol Workshop Madrid

Protocol and Professional Self-Image Workshop

 

The students at Schiller’s Madrid Campus had the chance to attend a workshop on Protocol and Professional Self-Image prepared by our Career Services Department and led by the Adecco company, the largest staffing firm in the world and a Fortune 500 company. The speaker, Isaya Chacon, is an Independent Consultant for Development and Training. 

 

One of our International Business students, Lucia Martin, tells us about her experience at the workshop:

The workshop on Protocol and Self Image aimed at teaching us the importance of dressing and acting in an appropriate way in the professional world. We learned the difference that the length of a skirt or the buttoning of a jacket can make and how what we wear should be consistent to what we are trying to transmit. To prove this point, we were divided in teams and challenged to create the best and the worst professional look we could, so we would see for ourselves the way we would react to each of them. 

 

However, we didn’t focus only on clothes. The workshop also addressed the attention we should give to our body language: our posture, the way we talk, the way we look, etc. Our image is what ultimately represents us, it is our cover letter and it gives more information about us that anything we might say. 

 

We are our own brand and if we want to sell it, we need to show how confident, effective and great that brand is.
