Internship is the most valuable way to integrate the academic environment with real-life practice through applied project work

The University of Dubai (UD) considers one of the channels bringing together the College, the students, and the job market.

What is career development?

Career development is the process of self-knowledge, exploration, and decision-making that shapes your career. It requires successfully navigating your occupational options to choose and train for jobs that suit your personality, skills, and interests.

When someone pays careful attention to their career development, they identify their own strengths and blind spots, then work hard to improve their skills. It also involved learning about different roles and industries to find a match to their abilities, seeking out opportunities to advance, and maybe even changing careers altogether if they find a more suitable one.

The purpose of career development

Career development can start when someone is quite young and just learning about different ways to make a living. It is a part of human development, and the process can span a lifetime.
