KEDGE BS is both AACSB and EQUIS accredited. Students are encouraged to take general education courses such as humanities etc, free electives and business electives. All courses must be approved by the School of Business Administration (SBA). KEDGE BS has only 5 ECTS credit courses, not 6. This requires special advising considerations agreed to with SBA. IXO will provide students with the advising sheet.

IXO Summer Student

Claire McKinnon, a student from San Diego State University who is majoring in International Security and minoring in Islamic and Arabic studies chose to spend her summer here at AUS for her study abroad experience. 
Claire at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi
Within 5 weeks, Claire made sure she really got to see most of the UAE. She had an exquisite time in Abu Dhabi, visiting the Grand Mosque and Ferrari World. She enjoyed the marvels of Dubai, going to the top of the Burj Khalifa, exploring Dubai Mall and visiting Jumeirah Beach. She had fun visiting the cultural museums in Sharjah and going jet skiing. She indulged in the UAE culture learning how to cook Arabic food, experiencing her first camel ride and camel burger and discovered some amazing Arabic music. She also visited Ajman, Fujairah and Oman.

Culture Shock?

There were only two things that I found to be "culture shocking". One I experienced when I first visited the Dubai mall.
