Kris Jenner to Launch Business School in Dubai
The Kardashian Matriarch plans to set up school 1st in New York, then the UAE
Television star Kris Jenner is setting up to launch a Legacy business school in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The mother to the Kardashian children came to Dubai to launch the school, which opens in New York City in September.
Then, thanks to the efforts of Jenner’s close friend Carla Di Bello, a Campus will then open in Dubai, and Mrs. Jenner will act as Chairwoman of the school’s board.
Ms. DiBello said they are looking at locations in the city and did not confirm a launch date.
Legacy is a private business school of higher education offering Bachelor, MSc, MBA and Certificate Programs at its flagship location in New York’s Fifth Avenue and soon in its new location in Dubai.
The school will focus on fashion management and Mrs. Jenner says she would be willing to allow students to intern with her family’s businesses “if they have the right passion for it”, she told a press conference Monday.
More than just reality TV stars, the Kardashian-Jenner business empire carried by Kris and her children, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie and Kendall, plus Jenner’s ex-husband Caitlyn, has an estimated net worth of over $300-M.
This marks Mrs. Jenner’s 2nd visit to Dubai.
In Y 2011, she was here with Kim to launch Millions of Milkshakes, a milkshake bar in Dubai Mall, and brought the Keeping up with the Kardashians camera crew with her.
A spokesperson for Mrs. Jenner said: “Extending beyond the classroom, Legacy offers premiere amenities; dining and shopping options, as well as prime student services. By delivering elite personalized treatment to students, Legacy blurs the line between school and leisure in order to captivate minds in an impactful way.”
