UAE students will be taught specialised financial skills under a new programme borne from an agreement between Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and Bloomberg LP.
The aim of the Adnoc-Bloomberg Education Initiative is to ensure the UAE’s workforce is ready to navigate capital markets and securities.
Students will learn the fundamentals of global financial markets and the role of financial information and analytics in the investment and trading community.
The agreement between Adnoc, the Ministry of Education and the private financial, software and data company was signed in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
Up to 10 universities will take part and their students will have access to up to 5,000 Bloomberg Market Concepts certifications — an e-learning curriculum that introduces students to global financial markets.
