The Executive MBA programme in Dubai is delivered in collaboration with the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
Partnership with the Dubai International Financial Centre
DIFC is the financial and business hub connecting the region's emerging markets with the markets of Asia, the Americas and Europe. Since its launch in 2004, DIFC, a purposely built financial free zone, has been committed to encouraging economic growth and development in the region through its strong financial and business infrastructure.
Currently, DIFC's client base comprises almost 900 active registered firms, including:
- 17 of the world's top 25 banks
- eight of the world's ten largest insurers
- eight of the top 15 top law firms
- ten of the top 20 money managers
- seven of the top ten consultant companies in the world.
Around 13,000 employees operate in an open environment complemented by international legal and regulatory standards.
DIFC offers its member companies benefits such as 100 percent foreign ownership, zero percent tax rate, with no restriction on capital convertibility or profit repatriation. DIFC has its own independent financial and ancillary services regulatory body, the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA). It also has the DIFC Courts, which is an independent common law judiciary based in DIFC with jurisdiction over civil and commercial disputes in or relating to the Centre. DIFC is built upon a modern legal, regulatory and physical infrastructure which makes it the destination of choice for Financial Services firms establishing a presence in the region.
