Dean of the RDSBL, Professor Mohammad Ali hosted a stimulating panel discussion discussing the future of the business and legal industries and how fast-paced technology was shaping the jobs of the future. He commented, "The RDSBL is focused on ensuring students are career ready when they graduate. So when we re-imagine Business and Law, we want our students to develop their digital capability and use of technology. Working with organisations such as AWS will be a huge part of our future as we prepare our students to succeed in this new landscape."
Vice Chancellor and president, Professor Amanda Broderick introducing the event said, "In line with our 2028 vision and strategy, here at the UEL we want our students to be career-ready - to move seamlessly from study to the world of work. We prepare them to have influence, experience and vision, ensuring they can shape the business and legal world of the future for the benefit of all."
With the new City Hall headquarters having moved to the Royal Docks in March, Mayor Sadiq Khan said, "Our city needs young people with the skills that will help to drive London's economic future and it was great to see the fantastic new facilities for students at UEL's School of Business and Law. The centre of gravity in London is moving east, with City Hall recently relocating to the Royal Docks - as well as heralding a new era for the GLA, the move will help boost the regeneration of this exciting part of east London."
