Students at DIS have the unique opportunity to undertake work placement within the Al Futtaim Group. Through meetings with the IBCP coordinator, students are given placements that directly link with their career aspirations to give purposeful experiences. Students participate in work placement on a weekly basis throughout the year to give them a valuable experience.

The experience gained from this is highly valuable for both the students career pathway but also for their university applications. Universities highly value the first-hand experience in a work environment therefore the IBCP work placement strengthens students applications.
