The Majid Al Futtaim Retail Business School will focus exclusively on dynamic learning programmes for employees running its Carrefour operations as the company seeks to accelerate its ambitious growth plans. It is expected that 2,500 employees will benefit from learning opportunities from the school this year.

The school features the first of its kind in the region virtual reality training room, paperless classrooms, a multimedia studio, social spaces, catering facilities, and a formal boardroom. The campus is located at Carrefour’s premises at Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai.

“Majid Al Futtaim’s new Retail Business School is a testament to our commitment to talent and investing in our people at the highest levels.

The course curricula has been fully developed in-house based on more than 20 years of experience and learnings from operating the Carrefour brand in the region.
