Accompanying this highly competitive program is the opportunity for the graduates of AWE to become automatic members of the U.S. government exchange alumni community, conferment that grants them access to an extensive network of top and similar business-minded professionals all over the country.

In her words “this is another great opportunity for women to participate in the economic and leadership space and we encourage many female entrepreneurs to apply for the program. This program is a game-changer for business owners. We have seen exponential growth in the businesses of our alumnae, and we look forward to welcoming successful applicants this year”.

  • World Class Banking & Infrastructure. Choose from local or international banks for your onshore or offshore banking operations.
  • Expo 2020 will boost tourism and other parts of the economy as the government spends a predicted $7 billion on infrastructure, with the benefit expected to trickle down to other industries. That spending will equate to a 0.5% point increase in GDP in the years 2016-2019. Given the relatively small size of Dubai’s economy, the economic impact will be quite large.
