Dubai’s vision to be the global hub for Islamic Economy merged with a workforce capacity planning study conducted by academia experts at Cambridge Academy for Higher Education led to a strategic plan to establish a new graduate school for Islamic Economy Studies in UAE to address the need to provide researchers and educated executives.
Islamic economic products valued at trillion of dollars, and Dubai looks to boost exposure to this industry. 2013 set records for Islamic bond sales in the Arabian Gulf, with $21.2bn (Dh77.87bn) raised by companies in the region, creating a boom for investment banks operating in the Dubai International Financial Centre.
Prof. Saad Othman, President of Cambridge Academy for Higher Education in Fujairah announced at the graduation ceremony of the first batch of executive MBA students in UAE which was held at Convention Center, Dubai International Financial Center in Dubai.
