In an effort to enhance and expand the experience and exposure of our students, Emirates Diplomatic Academy has successfully hosted a series of speakers, roundtables, special debates, and simulations, and engaged in major national initiatives throughout the first academic year. While most of our activities are closed door events, we do make sure to communicate our public events.
