Dubai Financial Hub in the Middle East including Financial Markets & Islamic Finance

Dubai is one of the most important commercial and financial hubs in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). It provides a highly sophisticated infrastructure for banking, capital markets, asset management, private wealth management, and Islamic finance. Additionally, it is a trading hub and a place to do business since more than 100 years. Many free-trade zones have been founded in Dubai, and a host of multi-national companies (MNCs) have set up their regional headquarters in the city.

Legal Framework for Trade, Aviation, & Logistics

With the famous airline Emirates and its newly expanded international airport, Dubai is already the most important logistics hub in the Middle East. You will learn about the importance of Dubai as one of the major logistic hubs worldwide and the legal implications for developments including the new Al Maktoum Airport with a passenger capacity of 160 million per year.

Corporate Law & Start-Up in the Middle East

How do you start a business in Dubai? This course will outline the various possibilities to found companies, representative offices, and joint ventures. Using corporate law case studies, you will gain an understanding of the legal system in Dubai and analyse the successes of UAE entrepreneurs.

Taxation Law in the Middle East & Free Trade Zones

The introduction of Free Trade Zones in Dubai has provided attractive alternative tax schemes for international organisations. You will understand taxation law in these zones and whether limitations exist for international corporations doing business here.

Hospitality & Real Estate Project Management

Dubai is also internationally well known for its highest level of hospitality management. Many 5-star hotels are located here and Jumeirah, the world’s famous luxury hotel chain is headquartered in the city. The seven star hotel Burj Al Arab is also located in Dubai. Learn more with us how the hospitality industry is working.

Intercultural Communication & Management in UAE

When doing business in the Middle East, it is wise to bear in mind the great diversity within the region. However, a common religion, language, and culture make the highlighting of general traits and features for the region valid. Intercultural communication is a fantastic transferable skill within the professional workplace, particularly for international travellers.

Arabic Language Introduction

Integrated into your study abroad programme in Dubai, you will experience an introduction to the Arabic language provided by ITEC Dubai and The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management. Spoken by over 280 million people worldwide, you will be picking up some basic phrases and expressions that you will be able to use during your stay. The modules will not only give you an insight into the language, but also of the old and rich Arabic culture.
