MGB students specializing in Global Finance visited the Dubai Financial Market, the leading financial market across the region, on 15th December 2016, as a part of their Global Learning Day.

To understand Dubai’s financial market, visiting DFM was crucial, for it is the first financial market to have offered its shares through an IPO in the Middle East, and this reflects the leading role played by the Emirate of Dubai in selling the shares of governmental institutions in the region. Its ongoing efforts and strategic initiatives have further reinforced Dubai as a centre of excellence in this part of the world and has enhanced its leading position as a powerful capital market hub, which embraces the best international practices to meet the evolving needs of its investors locally and internationally.
