Under the directive of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Dubai Future Academy was launched as part of the Dubai Future Foundation in 2017. The Academy’s mission is to deliver educational programs that address today’s pressing challenges by preparing industry pioneers in the UAE.

The academy provides integrated future-oriented education and training programs, allowing government officials and private-sector professionals in the UAE and the region to increase their awareness of the strategic sectors of the future, which, in turn, improves their abilities to make sound decisions, plan, and formulate strategies for the future.

“We want to provide the new generations with the skills needed for the future. This is our national duty.”

H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
