Eesa Mohammed Al Al Bastaki, President of the University of Dubai, highlighted the program’s role in preparing the next generation of leaders in customs and international trade. The curriculum includes elements of digital transformation, innovation, and change management, setting a new standard in customs and international trade education. This aligns with the vision of “We the UAE 2031” and supports the social, economic, and developmental aspects of the UAE’s growth.

The program integrates practical modules covering international trade agreements, customs procedures, technology in customs operations, port security, and inspection. This comprehensive approach equips employees with a deep understanding of business operations, along with specialized knowledge in customs and international trade.

By providing insights into global business perspectives and emerging technologies in customs and trade, the program aims to develop leaders who can uphold international standards and prepare national talents for leadership roles within Dubai Customs.
