Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders

Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders

In 2016, a vast majority of our branch managers were UAE Nationals*

The UAE Vision 2021 calls for a focused effort to provide job opportunities for UAE nationals in the public and private sectors. ADCB has one of the strongest nationalisation rates in the UAE's private sector and ranks among the leading banks in Emiratisation. We support this initiative by creating meaningful opportunities for UAE nationals to achieve their ambitions. ADCB actively recruits talented national graduates and provides valuable professional training while supporting their career growth and promoting financial stability. We also sponsor a number of programs that directly support Emiratisation.

Ambition University

Our corporate university was designed to advance business-driven learning and ultimately create value for our employees, our shareholders and our customers. The university's 'Leadership & Management' and 'Emirati' Academies aim to develop sustainable leadership and management capabilities within ADCB. These programmes increase our efficiency and enable us to meet current and future business challenges, as well as to support continuous personal development and growth.

Emirati Graduate Development Programme

ADCB developed the Emirati Graduate Development Programme (EGDP) to help new graduates cultivate the skills they need to take on full-time positions within diverse business areas across the Bank. This multi-faceted programme also offers practical business experience through job rotations and professional qualifications.

Aspiring Managers Programme

High-potential UAE nationals are offered a 10-month programme, which includes internal and external development workshops, along with opportunities to gain practical experience. The programme aims to create a robust pipeline of future leaders capable of contributing at ever higher levels.
