All our programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education. In recognition of our efforts to strengthen our global position, our programs are also accredited by AACSB, the global leader in business school accreditation. Moreover, our undergraduate programs enjoy their own discipline-specific recognition and accreditation.
