Michigan State University students interact with the faculty at university’s branch campus in Dubai International Academic City.Students, accompanied by parents and friends, interacted with the faculty and staff as officials gave them an overview of the college's facilities and curricula.

Neguine Ghammachi, who has taken up BA in Psychology, said, 'I believe that MSU Dubai would offer the same teaching and research facilities as its parent university in the United States. I didn't want to study in the US as I wanted to be closer to home. However, I plan to go for an exchange programme to a university in Paris after my first year.'

Another student, Rebecca Lakin, said, 'Though I don't think the college experience would be the same as abroad, I believe the teaching would be good. I chose the university after I checked the accreditation and its programmes with my brother in the US, after which I decided to enrol here.'
