Mohamed bin Zayed University for Humanities (MBZUH) and Anwar Gargash Diplomatic Academy (AGDA) have signed an agreement to provide reciprocal programmes in diplomacy and leadership.
The seminars and workshops will help the two institutions co-operate with research and facilitate in the development of Emirati leaders, who will be able to go on and represent the UAE on the international stage.
"We look forward to our partnership with AGDA, which marks a major milestone in our shared objective of driving the continuous development of national competencies," said Dr Khaled Al Yabhouni Al Dhaheri, MBZUH chancellor.
Staff from AGDA will enroll in the Tolerance and Philosophy programmes, as well as language classes such as Hebrew, Russian and Arabic at MBZUH.
The partnership also includes organising and attending cultural and educational events held by both institutions.
"I am honoured to celebrate this essential partnership, between AGDA and MBZUH," said Bernardino Leon, director general of AGDA.
"At the AGDA, we are wholeheartedly committed to providing the highest standards of academic education and effective training for the future diplomats of this visionary nation."
The two entities will join efforts in providing high-quality training to set a framework for cultural and educational partnerships and qualifying nationals to become leaders in promoting diplomatic dialogue.
