16th May - 5th June
Surveys conducted at the end of 2013 by CIMA indicated average salary figures for graduates starting at AED 16,950 per month plus bonuses of AED 867 (Tax Free). It was further discovered that over the course of 2014, salaries were expected to rise at a rate of 10%. However, purchasing power has to be taken into account as otherwise the figures may serve as an illusionary prospect. The cost of living in the UAE is extremely high and income has hence been adjusted and largely determined by the absolute value and relative movements in the Consumer Price Index.
