|The Alumni and Career Placement Center at ACK organized the very first Alumni Entrepreneurs Exhibition. The 2-day exhibition hosted ACK alumni who have successfully created their own businesses and was attended by members of ACK management and representatives of the Australian Embassy.
Among the visitors representing the Australian Embassy were Ms. Elise Cole Andrews, Head of the Political Section; Ms. Shaza Ayesh, Public Diplomacy Officer.
The Alumni and Career Placement Center organized the exhibition to serve as a platform for ACK Alumni entrepreneurs to showcase their products and the services provided by their own businesses. The exhibition featured a diverse range of businesses with varied offerings to ACK staff and students including travel agencies, fitness centers, beauty and health centers, construction and advertising companies.
All the businesses hosted were conceptualized and developed by ACK graduates and their promotional booths helped them highlight their achievements, share their success with existing students and it was a chance for them to offer ACK undergraduate students opportunities to join their companies as internes, volunteers and, in some cases, full time employees.
Dr. Zeina Nehme, Manager of the Alumni and Career Placement Center, praised the alumni business owners for their efforts at the exhibition and for helping to inspire the students in attendance. “We are very proud of them,” said Dr. Nehme “Their success after graduation is inspiring and we hope more of our students follow in their footsteps.”
