DIFC, University of Paris II launch joint Business and Law Degree
(16 September 2018)


Dubai International Financial Centre, DIFC, announced today that The Academy, a state-of-the-art facility, curating a full range of impactful, regionally relevant executive education programmes, has entered into a partnership with The University of Paris II Pantheon-Assas to support the launch of a joint Master of Laws (LLM) in International Business Law.

Arif Amiri, Chief Executive Officer at DIFC Authority and Professor Guillaume Leyte, President of the University signed the Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, in the presence of the French Ambassador to the UAE and Honorary Patron of the agreement, Ludovic Pouille. Dr. Nada Mourtada, Secretary-General of the University Leadership Consortium, ULC, and Raja Rabia, Consul-General of France in Dubai also attended the signing ceremony.

The latest partnership will launch a business law degree in 2019 in Dubai and Paris. The degree is for aspiring young leaders, talented administrators, and managerial groundbreakers. The LLM International Business Law prepares students and professionals for operations such as large acquisitions or market transactions, cross-border mergers, complex financing, restructuring, leveraged buyouts (LBOs), financial engineering, and industrial projects.

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Executive Officer at DIFC Authority said, "The Academy is a key pillar of our commitment to ensuring that Dubai remains at the forefront of human capital development across the region. Through our collaboration with University Paris II Pantheon-Assas, we continue to deliver on our promise to provide world-class programmes where UAE nationals, residents and professionals can enhance their financial knowledge."

"As we continue to bring in the best in class programmes to Dubai, I’m confident that The Academy will play an integral role in attracting talent and in supporting UAE Vision 2021’s objective of developing a competitive knowledge-based economy."

President of University of Paris II Pantheon-Assas commented, "We are particularly proud to be signing this joint initiative to launch our flagship LLM Master’s degree programme in International Business Law with the DIFC Academy under the patronage of the French Ambassador Pouille. Being recognised as the leading law school in France the University of Paris II could not have tied itself with a more pertinent strategic partner than the DIFC, which is legitimately acknowledged, far and wide, as the financial hub and the core business district of Dubai and well beyond. Law and International Business could therefore not have found a better intersection.

He added, "We look forward to working together very closely with the DIFC leadership to offer the UAE youth and upcoming leaders through this focused joint programme a unique avenue to sharpen their capacity-building skills and widen their knowledge. More than a master’s level degree, this joint programme in International Business Law therefore contributes to the strategic goals of knowledge economy the UAE steadily continues to earn and we are particularly proud to be part of these joint endeavours and of the continued initiatives aiming to strengthen the robust ties between France and the UAE as emphasized by French Ambassador Pouille during our launch event."
