IED’s mission is to support the community and major national initiatives by working closely with the private and public sectors to create and implement practical programmes in support of their leadership and strategic objectives.

Being part of Abu Dhabi University, IED has the local infrastructure and development mechanisms for continuous learning and the sharing of knowledge among managers and leaders within the region.

IED quickly recognised that no single business school provides excellence across all areas of executive education, so has therefore carefully selected a number of strategic partners in providing local managers and leaders with world-class executive education and certification to ensure their success now and into the future.

IED partners include world-renowned business schools, international award accreditation bodies and highly innovative niche education providers. Business school partnerships include Ashridge (UK), Babson (US), PennState (US) and the Chartered Management Institute (UK).

IED has developed an essential suite of programmes to equip regional leaders, practitioners and organisations with world-class capabilities.
