Insead inaugurates new campus in Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, September 28, 2017

Insead, one of the world’s leading business schools with campuses in Europe, Asia and Middle East, has opened its new campus, in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge, ADEK, and the Abu Dhabi Global Market, ADGM, located in the heart of the capital at ADGM Square, Al Maryah Island.

The event also marks ten years since Insead officially established its presence in the UAE, said a statement from the company.

The launch comes following a MoU, signed earlier this year by ADEK, ADGM and Insead, that underlines their active engagement towards building up business knowledge and competence in Abu Dhabi, and reinforces the emirate’s role as a centre of excellence for education, knowledge and talent development.

The new campus is a key part of Insead’s global strategy and is testament to the business school’s commitment to furthering excellence in management and entrepreneurship in a dynamic region with economic energy and that is open to the world.

Present at the inauguration ceremony were Dr Ali Al Nuaimi, the chairman of ADEK, Ahmed Al Sayegh, chairman of ADGM, Sharifa Al Jabri, the acting director-general for The Human Resources Authority of Abu Dhabi, and Prof Miguel Lobo, the director of Insead Middle East Campus in Abu Dhabi.

Speaking at the launch, Dr Al Nuaimi said: "Insead continues to prove how competent and powerful they are in building up business knowledge and talent amongst professionals, entrepreneurs and senior executives, who are expected to contribute to a demanding job market, whether nationally or internationally."

He pointed out there was significant competition in the market place for highly qualified professionals and entrepreneurs.

"The nation has high confidence in its youth, and encourages diversification in various fields. All professions are equally important. In order for the economy to further flourish, our aim should be to highlight potential talent amongst tomorrow’s future generation, and improvise on their capabilities," he noted.

Al Sayegh said: "The opening of the new Insead centre augments our ambition to establish the regional education hub for business and financial knowledge, skills and expertise.

"This also attests to ADGM's strength and fundamental as the preferred international financial centre and playing our part in contributing to the growth and future of Abu Dhabi, the UAE and the greater region," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
