The Bethnal Green and Bow MP spoke to undergraduates at Hult House East in Commercial Road and also met the dean and college president.

“The students are an asset to the UK,” Rushanara said. “They spend money while studying and continue contributing to our economy when they return home, either through international business or by returning as visitors.”

She discussed with Dean Ronan Gruenbaum how the business school can continue contributing to Britain’s “world-class higher education sector” and to east London’s economy.

The campus opened in 2014 offers a degree in business administration. It is one of seven Hult centres around the world including Boston, New York, San Francisco Dubai and Shanghai.

Students come from 150 countries and are encouraged to rotate their campuses to experience a different business culture in each location and learn problem solving beyond cultural or national differences, which the college says is “how the real world works today”.
