Our Institutional History:
Since its creation in early 1997, under the jurisdiction of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, University of Dubai has undergone a period of rapid and substantial development.
In September 1997, with just 15 staff members, University of Dubai started with 160 students. A year later, University of Dubai saw extraordinary growth potential beginning to emerge with 350 students enrolled, and six months later, it occupied significant space in two buildings (DCCI & Al Masaood Campuses).
At the same time, essential development in staffing and support infrastructure was taking place, with staffing reaching about one hundred employees. Their continuous contributions have helped us reach today’s leading position in research and consultancy, Bachelor’s programs as well as professional qualifications and corporate training.
In January 2000, a decree issued by the Dubai Ruler’s Court granted University of Dubai its legal status. Soon thereafter, the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, through a second decree, granted University of Dubai a license to develop and award its own degree programs. Thus, September 2000 saw the commencement of the UD’s new portfolio of academic programs.
Fitness Center, Outdoor Football Field, Outdoor Multi-Functional Court, Outdoor Sand Court, Indoor Gymnasium, Aquatic Center, Game Room, Common Room, Prayer Rooms, Student Union, Cultural Clubs, Professional Clubs, Sports Clubs, Bylaws.
This portfolio included a series of Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration (BBA) covering Marketing, Management, Banking and Finance, Accounting and Tourism & Hospitality Management, in addition to two Bachelors of Science (B.Sc.) programs in Internet Computing and in Computing and Information Technology.
