  • We welcomed GEMS Modern Academy students this year for their summer internship program. It was a great experience to see the passion and enthusiasm in these young talents who are an assurance for a brighter future for tomorrow.
    Our internship program has provided them the insights of a workplace environment and the contribution of each department in achieving the corporate goal. Our team was delighted to share their knowledge and experience with these passionate interns and finding them keen to grasp maximum out of this program.
    Kibsons has a multicultural environment and our staff brings with them their cultural values and it serves every newcomer in understanding and accepting other cultures resulting in a personality development.

  • GEMS Modern Academy and SAE Dubai have been collaborating for the past 4 years in a way to develop the creative thinking to the Modern Academy students by modelling and inspiring them through practical internships and job shadowing, students are able to learn, grow and express their talents and creativity in a media driven environment.”
    We have designed a specific program for the students who applied to SAE for internship based on their areas of interest
    This internship helped them understand the field of media production in a practical manner and to progress in an academic environment yet through a very hands on approach
    The students shadowed the Graphic Design and Marketing departments. The outcome of the internship resulted in producing a promotional ad for one of the programs we offer at SAE and the ad is currently used by the university for marketing purposes

  • My son Adrian Gomes of Grade 12C attended a week's internship at ABB industries which is a multinational technologically innovative company. Everyday was an experience for him, he was given tasks to analyze the company’s annual report and speak about it as if he was the CEO of the company, this improved his interpersonal and analytical skills as well as gave him an insight into the field of business. Along with this he was also given tasks to speak in front of a few senior managers of the company who gave him  positive feedback which benefitted his confidence and speaking skills. He also learnt how to analyze his strengths and weaknesses to improve on his own decision making skills. Above all, he was taken to the actual factory where they taught him about the workings of the different machines and products made there, further expanding his practical knowledge in physics. Overall it was an enriching experience for him.
