More than Ten Years Reputation for Quality in the Gulf Arab States
Zayed University has been offering master's degree programs since 2001.
Zayed University is the only national university in the U.A.E. accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. This means your Zayed degree has an international assurance of quality. Graduate programs are also approved by the U.A.E. Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
Campus Environment and Facilities
Zayed University's striking new building complexes are attractively located on self-contained sites in Abu Dhabi and Dubai with modern and fully equipped teaching facilities, wireless internet, computer laboratories, outstanding library resources, study areas, food courts and coffee shops, bookshops, gymnasiums, and a swimming pool.
"Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, is the cultural, political and economic heart of the country. Abu Dhabi has a strong, growing economy and the world's highest per capita GDP. The authorities are actively engaged in a long term program of diversification and Abu Dhabi has rapidly growing manufacturing and services sectors. A major attraction for foreign business is the ongoing liberalization and internationalization of the economy, which is opening up a range of new opportunities in many sectors."
With its dynamic economy and linking the Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Indian subcontinent, Dubai is one of the most internationalized and exciting cities that attract people from all over the world. As a regional center for education, finance, health care, information technology and media, Dubai provides excellent career and networking opportunities for students.
Year-round sunshine, beautiful beaches, and superb facilities for leisure and recreation (with a touch of Arabian adventure) makes the United Arab Emirates an ideal destination for your studies.
The quality of graduate programs program rests on the excellence of the teaching and research by Ph.D. qualified academics from Zayed University and, for some of the graduate programs, its international partner universities.
For some of the graduate programs offered, faculty utilize a mix of in-classroom and distance learning instruction to accommodate working graduate students. This integrated method of teaching also ensures that new tools, ideas and skills can be immediately applied to the workplace.
Education with Relevance
As well as providing a strong balance of theoretical and practical management learning, teaching methods vary from course to course and include a mix of lectures, case studies and group projects. Students also work in ‘learning teams' throughout some of the graduate programs. In this way, a range of professional, cultural and educational backgrounds are brought together to address a particular issue.
Some graduate programs require the completion of a final research project allowing students to tackle specialized topics that might not be covered in depth in a course.
An international field trip is a core component in the curriculum of some of the graduate programs offered by Zayed University. The international field trip provides an opportunity for students to travel to meet with industry business leaders and Zayed University's international partner universities.
Small Class Sizes
A low student-to-faculty ratio promotes group discussion and a personal approach. A high quality peer group of U.A.E. nationals with a variety of management roles allows for effective collaborative learning and valuable networking.
An Environment that Fosters Female Advancement
While admission to graduate programs is open to males and females of all nationalities, Zayed University has a history of commitment to prepare women for senior management roles.
Excellent Career Opportunities
Zayed University's graduate programs are recognized by both students and employers as high quality programs that can provide a competitive advantage to open up good career opportunities.
Many Zayed graduates have either used their degree as a stepping stone in their career paths, or as a chance to enhance their skills in their current positions, many of whom hold a wide range of senior leadership positions in a broad spectrum of public and private sectors in the Gulf Arab States.
The cost-effective fee structure combined with academic merit-based scholarships and financial bursaries makes Zayed University's graduate programs accessible.
