About the University of Dubai

Earning credits at a double-accredited, modern university and breaking down prejudices in the year-round sunshine of one of the richest countries: sounds like a worthwhile semester at the University of Dubai! The University of Dubai (UD) was founded in 1997 by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and is a private, AACSB and ABET accredited university. It is divided into the College of Business Administration and the College of Information Technology. UD is affiliated to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), an initiative that endeavours to promote responsible management education at universities. The enrolment and tuition fees (see fact sheet) must be paid by the students themselves. HSBA student David S. reports on the hospitable and warm culture of the people, which has made life in Dubai easy. Free from prejudices, you can form your own picture of Arab culture and everyday life. The fellow students, most of whom come from the Middle East, are very helpful when it comes to organising leisure activities and insider tips. The university also organises various excursions, such as desert trips. "While many Europeans only explore Dubai as tourists, we had the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the culture of the Middle East. This gave me a multifaceted picture of Dubai," says Nicolas R. "And as a woman, you also feel comfortable here, but you should stick to the basic rules, i.e. keep your knees, shoulders and cleavage covered," says another HSBA student.
