Read about PwC’s work and research in education in the region


We are delighted to announce our appointment of PwC as knowledge partners for this year’s Bett MEA Leadership Summit & Expo.

This inspiring event brings together people, ideas, practices and technologies from across the region so that educators and learners can fulfill their full potential, and we are proud to have PwC playing a key role in this year’s summit.

PwC has operated in the Middle East region for more than 40 years, working in 23 offices across 12 countries in the region. Their global Education and Skills practice is based right here in Dubai, offering deep strategic and operational expertise across all education sectors to public and private providers regulators and finding agencies.

We feel that, with their deep local and extensive global expertise, PwC will make a valuable partner to this year's summit. Recently, as part of their ‘Understanding Middle East Education’ series, PwC brought out a report examining key enrolment trends and education outcomes of the UAE’s education system across its three main education stages - PreK. K-12 all the way up to Higher Education - and provisions in both public and private education systems across the country.

Sally Jeffery, Global Education & Skills Network Leader, said: “The UAE is one of the more mature education markets in the region and remains a draw for investors, educators and students. Its economy continues to be among the most competitive, and the quality of its primary and higher education systems rank among the top 20 globally, according to the latest Global Competitiveness Index rankings.”
