Aligned with UAE’s vision to build a knowledge-based economy, Abu Dhabi Global Market Academy (ADGMA), the knowledge arm of Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), announced the launch of a School of Digital Assets to lead the development of new digital skills based on the digital era.

The announcement was made at the ongoing Abu Dhabi Finance Week (ADFW), organized by ADGM, the international financial center of the UAE’s capital emirate. 

The new school will provide a foundation, intermediate, and advanced level programs exploring the metaverse, NFTs, cryptocurrency, blockchain, decentralized infrastructure, and cybersecurity. 

ADGMA collaborates with the Center for Finance, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (CFTE), Binance Academy, and Avnon Academy to train and accredit professionals in this area.

To build on these collaborations, ADGMA and Binance Academy jointly created an open-access learning center during ADFW that offers free blockchain and cryptocurrency education in over 20 languages.

“With the growing demand and added value around digital assets education and adoption, ADGM and ADGM Academy recognize the key role of specialized education along with the means to provide this at a professional level,” said Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, COO at ADGM and managing director at ADGM Academy.
