Dean and Academic President at Murdoch University Dubai, Dr. James Trotter said:
“At Murdoch University Dubai we provide our students with multiple opportunities to apply the knowledge they are acquiring in the classroom through real-world experiences. We partner with industry to give our students regular interactions with working professionals in their disciplines. Our students also have access to internship experiences, so that they already have experiences using what they have learned in actual workplace settings. We are very excited to partner with PRCA, one of the leading PR associations globally, and open doors to new opportunities, so that we can work together to enhance the experiences of our Communications students.”
