There are several reasons to consider AU College of Business Administration including the employability of our graduates, the strength of our brand that comes from being the oldest private university in the UAE, and our range of accredited programs.

We are one of a very small number of higher education institutions in the Arab region providing Bachelor of Science (BSc) degrees for internationally competitive programs (specifically Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing. We offer an MBA program with three areas of specialization (Financial Management, Human Resource Management, and Marketing), and in 2019, we launched our Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program. All our programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education.

We are in advanced stages of obtaining initial accreditation by AACSB, the global leader in business school accreditation.
