Commencing with a series of roadshows across leading UAE and UK-based universities, the 2024 edition of the programme provides graduates access to specialised training, professional one-on-one mentorship, job shadowing opportunities and real-world strategic projects across different business units within Dubai Holding’s portfolio, including real estate, asset management, entertainment, hospitality and investments.

Graduates enrolling in the programme will become integral members of a collaborative and inclusive team, allowing them to contribute to exciting initiatives and harness unrivalled networking opportunities.

Upon successful completion of the programme, graduates will have the opportunity to secure a full-time role within one of Dubai Holding’s companies, which operate across multiple sectors including real estate, hospitality, leisure and entertainment, retail, media, ICT, design, education, manufacturing and logistics, among others.

By offering an experiential journey of learning, collaborating and networking across diverse sectors and departments, the Dubai Holding Leaders of Tomorrow Graduate Programme will equip graduates with the experience needed to thrive in a rapidly evolving global landscape.”

She added: “Whilst the international expansion of the programme reflects our unwavering commitment to nurture talent on a global scale, the programme directly supports our Emiratisation drive and commitment to cultivate skillsets and build expertise amongst UAE nationals.
