    Get to know this great newly developing alumni group! They have already organized two dinners, both with alumni and current students interning in Jordan over the summer. Very jolly atmosphere and what an inspiring group! More to come in the fall! This growing community is diverse and dynamic; everyone is fascinated by the Middle East, has a unique professional path and is really serving SAIS values.

    This group came together through the efforts of SAIS graduates living and working in Dubai. Initially the number of SAIS alumni in Dubai was small, but as with most things in Dubai, it quickly grew. With new alumni arriving almost monthly, the club now has about 50 members and alumni organize events quarterly!
