In a significant move towards advancing financial education and expertise in technical analysis, the DIFC Academy, the education centre of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the leading global financial hub in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region, and the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) Association have announced a landmark partnership. The collaboration was formalised with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The signing ceremony, held at the prestigious DIFC Gate premises, was attended by the DIFC Academy leadership team, several board members, and senior staff from CMT Association and formalises the alignment of mission and vision between the two esteemed organisations to usher in a new era of educational opportunities for DIFC Academy students.

This ground-breaking partnership aims to develop cutting-edge training programmes in technical analysis, behavioural finance, market strategy, and FinTech integration. Tailored to cater to the evolving needs of finance professionals, these programmes are designed to provide comprehensive insights into cross-asset relationships, market trends, risk management, and trading strategies, combining the DIFC Academy’s vast knowledge in capital markets with the subject matter expertise of CMT Association and its global member community.

But our practitioners have always been at the forefront of industry change; serving as thought leaders and prominent voices for the rapidly changing financial services industry. Nowhere is this forward-looking spirit more evident than in Dubai. We are honoured to partner with the DIFC Academy and the pioneers here in Dubai, and across this region. This endeavour is about blazing trails together, at the cutting edge of the investment discipline.”
