Students in Dubai will soon be able to carry out business activities while they're studying.

That's because a new plan has been approved to roll out economic and creative free zones at universities across the city.

It was launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council.

The plan is expected to help create more home-grown entrepreneurs and business leaders.

He said the scheme will help students graduate with the business experience they need to pursue their dreams.
