Abu Dhabi’s National Defense College (NDC) and the Abu Dhabi School of Government (ADSG) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop joint training programs fostering knowledge exchange and enhancing participants’ leadership capabilities, while also aligning with the wider strategy of the UAE.

The MOU was signed by H.E. Major General Staff Aqab Shahin Aqab Alali, Commandant of the NDC, and H.E. Mohammed Gheyath Mohammed, Acting Director-General of the ADSG.

H.E. Sumaya AbdulAziz AlHosani, Dean of the ADSG, and members of the National Defense College faculty also attended the signing ceremony.

Major General Alali, said: “As a long standing partner of the ADSG, their commitment to realizing a sustainable knowledge economy is truly inspiring and we are thrilled to be a part of their tremendous efforts. We look forward to offering our expertise and resources to bolster their efforts and contribute to the development of these exceptional programs.”
Acting director general Mohammed said the ADSG’s work is closely aligned with the directives of the Department of Government support, which aims to strengthen, collaborate, coordinate, and communicate among various government establishments. “This agreement comes as part of our efforts to support human capital in Abu Dhabi by enhancing their capability to tackle future challenges and take advantage of future opportunities through our world-class programs and initiatives,” he said

“Our partnership with the NDC is specifically important because of the College’s integral role in honing strategic skills that can keep up with industries’ rapidly-increasing demands, as well as their expertise in the domains of research and information that serves the goals and vision of the Emirate’s government sectors.”

The agreement between the NDC and the ADSG involves developing and organizing joint educational and training programs and courses, which include but are not limited to a Master’s program in strategic and security studies, as well as an advanced course in strategy and strategic leadership.

The agreement also covers exchanging research periodicals and products, sharing insights on topics of mutual interest, and collaboration in research and development. In addition, the two entities will also organize joint practical seminars and workshops, and the participation of both parties in conferences and events of strategic importance.

The NDC is succesful in developing strategic capabilities and is a main source of strategic and security research. Its training programs for military and civilian leaderships bolsters participant capabilities and enables them to develop a deeper understanding of what is needed to manage and employ state resources in order to protect national interests.
