Project Overview

In 2014, the ADEC selected Kuder and the CERT to develop an online platform designed support students' aspirations and decisions about educational and career pathways. In addition to developing and implementing the system, Kuder has conducted professional development and system training throughout the Emirate and has served as a consultant to ADEC and CERT to develop education and employment policy goals in alignment with the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.

Kuder Journey® 

Our career planning system enables Emirati students to complete career assessments; explore occupational choices, education and training resources, financial aid and scholarship options; and create and maintain a lifelong career portfolio.


Our research faculty engaged with subject matter experts to localize the Kuder assessments, offer the system in both English and Arabic, and develop a robust and culturally-sensitive system as well as education and employment policy goals in alignment with the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030. 

Kuder Career Advisor Training® 

Our professional development course helps increase the capacity of Abu Dhabi's secondary and postsecondary educators in supporting students and graduates as they go about their education and career planning. The course covers a broad set of competencies including career development theories, models, and techniques; career assessment interpretation, labor market and occupational trends, and code of ethics.
