Abstract
While developed countries such as the USA will always retain the headlines, emerging markets have recently gathered attention, with countries like the United Arab Emirates (UAE) showing suppleness as a leader in carrying business, in an ever attractive environment full of economic activity and investment opportunities. International Competitiveness Reports speak highly of those prominent economies, not because of their oil riches and nonexisting tax schemes, but for exercising international standards set in the countries’ visions. Continuous efforts in building the economy has resulted in the UAE to be among the highest ranked globally. The World Economic Forum studied 144 countries in their World Competitiveness Index 2014-2015 report and ranked UAE sixth in terms of quality higher education and training and third globally in terms of infrastructure (World Economic Forum 2015). © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016.
