In order to expand the emirate’s knowledge economy, a program designed by Yale University has been launched in Abu Dhabi under the patronage of Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The program is being offered in the emirate by First Abu Dhabi Bank through a collaboration with Emirates Foundation and Icon Training & Coaching. It aims to further build the skills of Emirati talent in the financial sector and build capacity in navigating the complexities of the financial and investment sectors.
It focuses on a deeper understanding of investment management, decision making and strategy, as well as advanced concepts such as the application of data science and quantitative techniques in investment decisions.
The program is open for 25-30 participants nominated by government entities and companies related to financial or investment management, and will be held virtually over 12 weeks, from January to March 2022.
