July 8, 2014

The course is specifically designed for young people who aspire to become the business leaders of tomorrow.

Dunia Finance, a leading UAE-based financial services provider, is hosting the second rendition of its popular and award-winning Young Business Leaders Programme.

The course is specifically designed for young people who aspire to become the business leaders of tomorrow. Dunia's Young Business Leaders Programme proved to be a popular initiative in its inaugural year, winning recognition for Innovation in Learning at the Asian Leadership Awards 2013.

The significant positive feedback about the programme in its maiden year convinced Dunia's management team to make it an annual feature among the company's numerous corporate social responsibility commitments.

The complimentary annual programme, hosted by Dunia over a period of three weeks, offers high school graduates and university students a unique opportunity to combine their academic learning with practical corporate training and leadership skills development.

The course runs between July 6 to 24 and exposes participating students to insight and expertise from respected industry leaders and entrepreneurs, giving them a chance to fine-tune their leadership skills and commercial understanding.

Rajeev Kakar, managing director and chief executive officer of Dunia, said: "This is a comprehensive business programme, which gives students exposure to a broad skill set and is aimed at empowering them to take charge of their own future. It serves as an ideal platform to engage with industry leaders and real-life business practitioners, giving the students an authentic feel for life in the commercial world."

He added: "We want these young people to experience the ups and the downs of doing business, as well as learning about the essential skills needed to succeed, so that they are prepared and ready to be the next generation of business leaders, both in the UAE and in our fast evolving world."
