We chose Dubai for our students to get a holistic understanding of working in a multicultural environment and to learn more about business expansion. We are pleased that Tristar’s management team took time out of their busy schedule to meet with the students and give them an overview of the challenges and opportunities in today’s fast changing business environment, especially in the logistics industry.”
