Customs Learning Outcomes
As part of a university located within the global and energetic city of Dubai, the Dubai Business School faces a tremendous challenge and an opportunity to provide its students with a world-class education to enable them to excel in an innovative and dynamic environment such as UAE and to face the challenges of the 21st century.
We are committed to provide our students with a world-class education. Our programs offer solid foundation in knowledge and a hands-on learning experience. We also utilize experiential learning, case studies and simulations in class. But the excellence in education is mainly attributed to our distinguished and experienced international faculty members who have brought diversity and innovation into the classroom. Many of our programs are mapped to professional certificates which elevates the added value and market appreciation of our alumni. Industry specialists often visit our classes or teach in selective courses. Additionally, our association with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry has enriched our offerings in both quality and quantity. This is indeed, a recipe for a globally successful and a highly competitive graduate.
The College currently offers an undergraduate program with eight(8) areas of specialization, in addition to a flexible MBA program with four double majors and a rigorous Ph.D. program that is successfully celebrating its second year.
It is also important to mention that the College is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which represents the highest standard of achievement for a business school and is only achieved by less than 5% of business schools worldwide.
We are extremely proud of our twenty-years of service in Dubai. Our graduates are in high demand and many of our alumni occupy senior positions in organizations across the globe.
Quality is the bottom line for us, and UD is the perfect choice. I invite you to join the College to have a life changing experience.
