ADU’s efforts have earned its chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma multiple accolades since its inception in October 2015, including a mention in the highest BGS society honors list for the past three years. Furthermore, the ADU chapter’s nominee Shereen Al Nowais, social entrepreneur and founder of Taaleem Center in Abu Dhabi, received the BGS Business Achievement Award 2017 from the BGS Honor Society in the United States.
