Sorbonne Abu Dhabi offers a very interesting bachelor programme in Applied Foreign Languages (LEA) by delivering dual skills in management and languages and by giving the students all the necessary tools to enhance their employability. I chose to learn German (B2 level) because it is an efficient language for business and I think it will help me career wise. The ability to speak more than one language helps developing networks with business partners and foreign clients. The Bachelor changed my life and personality. 3 years ago, I had only little knowledge of foreign civilisations, European history and finance. Today, thanks to the Bachelor, I have a comprehensive understanding of finance, business administration, marketing, management of human resources, business and international law and civilisations. The knowledge acquired during these 3 years will not only help me in my professional life but in my daily personal life.
Today, I have a thorough knowledge of multicultural environments and global contemporary economic, political and human stakes. The Bachelor also includes a linguistic trip abroad, which gave me an incredible experience and improved my level of German. Those linguistic trips are amazing to give you a better understanding of European culture and to help you accept cultures that are very different from your own. The Department of Foreign Applied Languages was a considerable and constant support, similar to a family. I am very proud to be a graduate of this bachelor and my family is very proud.
“Studying at Sorbonne Abu Dhabi was a dream come true for me. After successfully completing my Bachelor degree in Applied Foreign Languages and Master degree in Banking and Finance: Law and Regulations of Banking and Financial Systems, I discovered that my passion is to work within an international organisation with excellent academic and cultural values. Sorbonne Abu Dhabi has proven that it is a leader in delivering academic services of world-class quality, and successfully bridging diverse civilisations.
After obtaining my Masters degree in Banking and Finance: Law and Regulations of Banking and Financial Systems, I was delighted to join the Sorbonne Abu Dhabi team as Admissions Officer in charge of scholarships, which perfectly matches my field of studies. My dream won’t stop here: I am aiming even higher because Sorbonne Abu Dhabi has a lot more to offer on both the professional and academic levels.”
