Abstract
Tourism in Dubai is an integral part of the Dubai government’s strategy for a sustainable future. Dubai being the most populous among the seven Emirates of United Arab Emirates serves as a gateway for tourism, business, investment, and education. Educational tourism is becoming a popular destination in major key cities around the world and Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is one of the leading destinations in that aspect. Dubai’s reputation in the tourism industry is remarkable as it offers better infrastructure, quality of life, and most of all a very safe place for education, tourism, and more. Educational tourism in Dubai plays significant role in knowledge management across society. This research study examines the suitability of Dubai as the frontrunner as education hub in United Arab Emirates and in the GCC region. Understanding the diversity makes it a multicultural educational hub for education and tourism. © 2017, Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
