Preparing Them For The Real World

Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Social Impact

At the core of GEMS World Academy - Dubai, our mission is to develop inquiring, reflective and caring leaders who will graduate from our Academy with the knowledge, skill and character to take action and create a better and more peaceful world.

With today's ever-changing world, our role is to prepare our students for the world that awaits them. In tomorrows’ world, students are far more likely to have to create their own employment since 65% of the jobs students will engage in do not exist today. We can’t prepare them for jobs that don’t yet exist so we are here to prepare them to be agile and adaptable in the face of profound shifts.

Meet The EIS Director

"All children are born entrepreneurs. We all have it in us to do things outside the box, as it’s about taking one idea and making it actionable. Given the right approach and right skills and opportunity, anyone can create. Everyone can be an entrepreneur. You can even be an entrepreneur inside a company if you innovate and do something differently – an intrapreneur."
