Abrahamic Business Circle Founder Awarded US Honors for Contribution to Economic Diplomacy in Middle East

California Metropolitan University awards the title of Doctor Honoris Causa to His Excellency Dr. Raphael Nagel

DUBAI, Arab Emirates – April 22, 2021 – (

Founder and Chairman of The Abrahamic Business Circle, H.E. Dr. Raphael Nagel, Investor, Senior Advisor to Royal Families and UHNWI, and philanthropist, has been given the prestigious Doctor Honoris Causa from the California Metropolitan University in recognition of his contribution to Economic Diplomacy in the Middle East.

The Jewish businessman who is based in Dubai has worked tirelessly to unite business leaders across the region in the wake of the historic Abraham Accords, announced in August.

“Economic diplomacy is a vital part of peace-building, and as a Jew in the Middle East, I feel I have a critical responsibility to be a part of the historic period we are living in,” he said. “We are in a time many of us thought we may never see, so I am truly honored to be recognised for my contribution.”

Since the signing of the accords, deals worth billions of dollars have been signed between countries such as the UAE and Israel, who after 70 years of divide, have reached a detente. The accords have also seen relations ease between Israel and its neighbours Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan.

“There is so much potential for the region since these accords,” said His Excellency. “We face many of the same challenges and share many traits, and not least between Israel and the UAE, there are some great synergies not only economically but in the wider sphere of humanity.”

In a letter from the university’s president, Roy Virgen Jr., to H.E Dr. Nagel, he said: “Your advocacy in stimulating business across the region is making a remarkable footprint for the rest of the business organisations to follow.”

H.E. Dr Nagel has been invited to join the university’s team of international faculty and industrial leaders in what the university said “will bring positive changes and development for the benefit of all.”
