Queen’s School of Business opens Dubai campus


Queen’s School of Business today became the first Canadian business school to open an executive education facility in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Courses at the facility, run in collaboration with the Dubai International Finance Center (DIFC), will begin in October 2007.

“As a world leader in business education, we are pleased to bring the Queen’s School of Business approach to managers and executives in this high growth region of the Middle East,” said David Saunders, Dean of Queen’s School of Business. “Queen’s Dubai participants will benefit from the academic excellence, exceptional experience and international reputation that are the hallmarks of every Queen’s program - be they in Canada or with one of our strategic partners around the world.”

Queen’s Dubai will begin by offering programs in strategy, leadership, finance, marketing, human resources and governance. Taught by award-winning Queen’s School of Business faculty, the courses are designed for managers in Dubai seeking professional development.

“Queen’s is a welcome addition to the DIFC, alongside London Business School and Cass Business School,” said His Excellency Dr. Omar Bin Sulaiman, Governor of the DIFC. “This program will not only accelerate participants’ personal development, but also benefit their companies, sectors, and the Middle East economy on a larger scale.”

The DIFC contacted Queen’s School of Business directly in their search for an education partner that could deliver high-quality executive development programs.

Queen’s Dubai programs will be held in The Gate, the architectural signature of the Dubai International Financial Centre District - a 110-acre site that is also home to the Dubai International Financial Exchange (DIFX) and head offices of leading international financial institutions.
