Mohammad Bin Rashid School of Government

"The leaders of tomorrow are our focus and the foundation of the future. Our duty is to advance their skills and knowledge to continually enhance the quality of public administration."
— HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Launched in 2005 under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice-President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai as the first research and teaching institution focusing on governance and public policy in the Arab world. The School aims to support good governance in the UAE and the Arab world, and build future leaders through an integrated system offering education and training programs, as well as research and studies.

The School's operations are founded on global best practices developed in collaboration with the Kennedy School at Harvard University, and is considered a unique model for academic institutions because it focuses on the practical side of governance. The School also collaborates with several governments and private institutions both regionally and internationally.

The overall design and implementation of training programs is built on the foundation of scientific thought and is inspired by the reality of Arab public administration with a view to addressing the issues and helping future leaders meet the challenges facing public administration in various parts of the Arab world. The School also organizes international and regional conferences and specialized workshops and holds forums to facilitate the exchange of ideas and knowledge between Arab region and the world.
