Being a University that is a part of Dubai Chamber, we come with a unique blend of consultants who have access to real time research and are interfacing with corporate, thus giving the client the best of both worlds. Apart from the core CBRC team, the CBRC team gains its strength from a diverse pool of competencies which cut across business and general management, organization development, strategy and leadership, information technology, data science, business analytics, information security and systems and engineering (communication). These diverse competencies and consulting capabilities are our core strengths, because of the richness in university structure derived from different streams like business management, engineering, information technology, general education and law. Apart from this CBRC is also enriched with domain experts from the industry and other similar external consulting practices.
