Impact of education on UAE economy

UAE and Dubai have been major hubs for education on the worldwide arena. In 2018 and beyond, private education will gain immense momentum with an annual growth rate of 5% till 2020. Education, healthcare, and tourism continue to remain top draws as outlined by the confirmed participant list for Dubai Expo 2020.  Out of the AED 569.3 billion (USD155 billion) of projects in the pipeline, a majority of the projects are into these 3 core non-oil sectors. The enhancement in education sector is driven by a larger picture – the growing economic outlook in the UAE predicted for 2018.

The number of students enrolling in primary, secondary, and tertiary segments has been outperforming global education average. This speaks volumes about the confidence people worldwide have on this sector in the UAE. Even in Dubai, the education sector is very strong with 1.7% contribution to the emirate’s GDP. In the past too, events like Tesol Arabia conference in 2015 have highlighted the immense scope UAE has in promoting world class education and make the region a global hub in superior level academics and higher education.

With these positive signals it is no wonder that Dubai is emerging as the new global hub for education. The International Education show is being held at a time when education is growing at a great pace especially in Dubai. This is confirmed by the revenues generated by private schools in Dubai totaling to AED 4.7 billion ($1.28 billion). For academic institutions looking to set up business in UAE or Dubai, they can carry out their due diligence and be assured of great business potential here.
