The Indian education giant Amity Group that operates various B-Schools across India, London, Singapore, New York, San Francisco, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Tashkent, Mauritius, South Africa, Kenya, has reportedly announced that it is projecting to set up new schools in the UAE and Oman.
According to a statement published on Arabian Business, Amity Group will open the new schools in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), UAE and Oman, both of which will run in accordance with the British curriculum.
Speaking to the Arabian Business, Atul Chauhan, president of Amity Foundation and chancellor of Amity University, said,
“We are working towards opening the two new schools by the next year academic session,”
From the financial side, Chauhan added,
“The new schools may entail a total investment of about $35 million. There is a need for good quality schools (in the UAE) and we have an exceptional record.”
The two new schools in Oman and RAK will make Amity’s network to a total of five schools across the Middle East as the education group is already operating three schools in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.
Speaking of the core-cognition behind launching new schools in the Gulf, Chauhan affirmed,
“Dubai is fast emerging as a regional international hub for education and we want to position our group as a leading institution there, providing a global standard of excellence in this field. We want to contribute to building the UAE’s education capacity.”
The Amity schools in the UAE are equipped with Ipad hubs, STEAM workshops, ICT labs, science labs, mathematics labs, creative art studios, performing art arenas, music studios, extensive sports facilities and libraries with a wide range of resources and information.
It is expected that with its new move, Amity is aiming to beat the likes of other Indian education groups operating the Middle East, which majorly include GEMS Group, Bhavans Group and Global Educational Solutions.
