1. Chief Executive Officers
What They Do: A chief executive officer is the highest-ranking executive manager in a company. The job varies according to their company’s mission, products and goals, but at the end of the day, CEOs have the ultimate responsibility for their company and its overall success.
What They Earn: CEOs earn the most money in the UAE. Their annual salaries average AED 1,200,000 (£252,875).
How to Become One: The minimum prerequisite for CEOs is an undergraduate degree related to their chosen field, though some companies may prefer a postgraduate degree. A strong background in finance, meanwhile, is essential, as is extensive experience in a managerial role.
