GEMS Education was established in the UAE in 2000 as a pioneering education company. Through its schools, consulting practice and charitable foundation, GEMS is supporting the availability of quality education for all. GEMS operates in 13 countries around the world, offering six different curricula adapted to suit the needs of its students. GEMS focuses on student development and teacher, thereby playing a key role in the education sector in the countries in which it operates.  

Mumtalakat, alongside Fajr Capital and Blackstone, invested in GEMS’ emerging market business in 2014, a network of 46 schools in the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeast Asia-  GEMS fastest growing markets. Through that network, GEMS educates over 115,000 students and employs 6,800 teachers. GEMS continues to build its network in the region, opening new schools and acquiring management contracts in new markets.
