Dubai International Financial Centre launches ’The Academy’
(11 September 2017)


Dubai International Financial Centre, DIFC, has announced the launch of ‘The Academy’, a state-of-the-art facility in DIFC for the promotion of excellence in business and financial services.

The academy will form partnerships with leading business schools and universities from around the world to deliver a range of executive education programmes. It will also host regular workshops and seminars led by industry experts from DIFC and its community.

On-site teaching will be spread across The Academy’s 21 seminar rooms, three lecture halls, and three large auditoriums, all of which are equipped with the latest IT and A/V equipment. Meanwhile, students will have access to a library and resource centre, prayer room, study areas, and video conference facilities.

Commenting on the announcement, Arif Amiri, Chief Executive Officer at DIFC Authority, said, "Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, emphasised that investment in education is an essential component of UAE Vision 2021. DIFC is pleased to be able to contribute to this by providing a platform for the region’s financial services community to broaden their business skills and deepen their understanding of financial markets."

For more than ten years, DIFC has made a significant contribution to the enhancement of human capital through its ongoing professional development programme and the strong partnerships it has with institutions such as City, University of London and the London Business School.

Each year, DIFC holds over 100 workshops and seminars for its growing community of more than 21,000 professionals. The Academy will build on these achievements, supporting the growth of human capital within the centre and the wider region.
