Discover Dundee in Dubai

A delegation including Al-Maktoum College, University of Dundee, Abertay University and Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce, are set to depart to Dubai in November 2019 to promote the city of Dundee and its ever growing education and business scenes.

During the visit, organised by Al-Maktoum College, delegates will attend a reception hosted by Mr Andrew Jackson, Consul General to Dubai and the Northern Emirates at the British Embassy, aimed at celebrating Al-Maktoum College international alumni, the city of Dundee, Dubai and the Sister City agreement between the two.

Members of the Alm College alumni community, along with Dundee and Abertay University alumni, UAE partnering universities, financial institutions, and other such dignitaries are expected to join the celebratory event.

Scottish Government Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation Mr. Ivan McKee MSP will also be in attendance at the event.

The visit also looks to provide an opportunity to officially launch the new MSc programmes in Islamic Economics and Finance to be taught jointly between the Al-Maktoum College and the University of Dundee. This is appropriate, given Dubai’s vision for becoming the world’s leading centre for Islamic Finance.

The College’s social media pages will provide live updates throughout the Dubai visit. Search #DundeeInDubai
