Taaleem Management Services Company, a minority-owned investment of CI Capital Holding for Financial Investments, signed a shareholder agreement with Palm Hills Developments (PHD) to build a university in PHD’s flagship project Badya, situated in West Cairo.

Under the deal, the joint venture (JV) will develop a university in Badya which is expected to serve up to 9,000 students.

The investment cost of the project is estimated to be between 1.6 billion Egyptian pounds and 1.9 billion pounds which will be financed by equity and debt.

PHD will hold an economic interest of 40 percent in the JV, while Taaleem will own the remaining 60 percent.


The university is expected to include a life sciences faculty in cooperation with Medical University of Vienna International (MUVI).
