Muhsineen Khan completed his BBA in Finance and Accounting at Abu Dhabi University (ADU) in 2017 and is now studying for an MBA. He has been working part-time with Students Affairs since May 2018 and spent time working in other ADU departments previously.
“I wanted to work whilst I was studying so I could be independent and not rely on my parents to pay my tuition fees. So, I’ve worked throughout my time in ADU and now feel like a seasoned professional.
The customer service work I’m involved in mainly revolves around helping students with their visa requirements, registering them for accommodation in the student dorms, alumni and career issues. I’m also involved in the running of various events in and around the University, which is a lot of fun.
I’d have to say that I’ve enjoyed working in Student Affairs the most, mainly because I love to talk, and I meet a lot of new people on a regular basis. The environment is a perfect match for my personality. The work can be challenging as you’re dealing with many different personality types on a variety of issues but it’s also fun and very sociable.
My schedule is extremely hectic as I work up to 28 hours a week and have a full study schedule. But I like to keep busy and love to multitask – an important life skill I believe. Given the opportunity, I’d be very happy to work full-time in Student Affairs after I complete my MBA.”
