Message from the Dean

Welcome to Dubai Business School!

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has recently celebrated the Golden Jubilee and started designing for the next 50 years. Dubai Business School wants to be a part of this journey.

As part of a university located within the global and energetic city of Dubai, Dubai Business School wants to provide its students with a world-class education to enable them to excel in an innovative and dynamic environment such as the UAE and to face the challenges of the 21st century. Our programs offer a solid foundation in knowledge and a hands-on learning experience. We utilize experiential learning, case studies, and simulations in our courses and build on our scholarly reputation.

As a mission-driven business school, Dubai Business School is well-positioned to respond to these challenges. We are committed to even better prepare our students for a changing, digital world and help them to become responsible future business leaders.

We can build on our association with the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the power of our incredible network of industry collaborations, partner schools, and alumni who provide leadership across all types of companies, from innovative start-ups to big organizations.

Dubai Business School 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.

I cordially invite you to be part of our journey, in 2022 and beyond.
