Oman/UAE trip featured in "Al Bawaba"

Al Bawaba ("The Gate"), a Middle East news site operating out of Jordan, reported on the study abroad trip that assistant professor Nathan French led to Oman/UAE during the 2016 Winter term.

The online report, posted on February 18, focuses on a visit that the Miami students made to Emirates Islamic, a bank in the UAE, to learn about Islamic finances (which operate without interest). Emirate Islamic's CEO is quoted expressing the bank's enthusiasm for collaborating with Miami University in cross-cultural learning.

Dr. French and Miami students appear in the photo that accompanies the online piece.
