ABU DHABI, 8th February, 2023 (WAM) — Abu Dhabi Global Market Academy (ADGMA), the knowledge arm of the international financial centre in Abu Dhabi; and EDGE Group PJSC have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to bolster talent development and professional growth.

As part of the agreement, ADGMA and EDGE will collaborate in areas relating to learning and innovation. They will jointly work on developing and establishing upskilling and reskilling programmes that will enable the creation of sustained employability. The MoU provides a framework for ADGMA and EDGE to exchange best practices and expertise to foster growth and support the UAE’s vision of transitioning to a knowledge-based economy through strategic collaboration. It will also provide EDGE with access to world-class talent assessment and development tools.

Commenting on this partnership, Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, CEO of the Registration Authority at ADGM and Managing Director of ADGM Academy, said, “We are thrilled to collaborate with EDGE to promote, develop and enhance financial literacy in Abu Dhabi and the UAE. We believe that working with EDGE will add significant value to ADGM Academy in its continuous endeavour to empower and build a highly competent workforce and positively contribute towards the expanding UAE’s knowledge-based economy.”

Trais Al Ketbi, President, Support Services, EDGE, added, “The signing of this MoU with Abu Dhabi Global Market Academy represents a significant step forward in EDGE’s commitment to fostering talent development and innovative learning. Through this partnership, we strive to build meaningful and impactful programmes to support the advancement and growth of our employees’ skills and capabilities.”

The partnership between ADGMA and EDGE affirms ADGM’s commitment to supporting the national agenda, while simultaneously fostering a brighter future for the next generation.

In 2022, EDGE launched its ‘IGNITE’ Programme, a dedicated UAE National Graduate Programme, which aims to attract the next generation of top STEM graduate talent to start their long-term career within the Group. ‘EDGE IGNITE’ provides value-driven capability development and an accelerated career development path for UAE Nationals through a comprehensive programme including a series of learning and development initiatives.

EDGE’s growth strategy is also supported by advanced programmes and initiatives offered at its recently launched state-of-the-art Learning & Innovation Factory, an Industry 4.0, operational excellence, and advanced technology learning and demonstration centre that combines theory, technology, and practice under one roof to drive modernisation and encourage creative approaches to the group’s day-to-day challenges across all its portfolio companies.
