CUD further revealed that one of the key highlights of the Open House is the formal launch of its new weekend schedules for its Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program, which will hold classes on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, offering a unique opportunity for employed students to pursue their studies.
During each Open House, visitors will have the opportunity to meet CUD’s deans and learn more about CUD’s undergraduate programs in Business Administration, Architecture and Interior Design, Engineering, Applied Science and Technology, Environmental and Health Services, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and a new program in Mass Communication in English & Arabic in addition to 5 graduate programs in Business Administration. All programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
Guests will also be able to tour the campus and observe CUD’s vibrant student life. Special offers will be available for those who register on the spot.
“CUD was founded as a visionary initiative to bring the best of Canadian and European education to Dubai and to provide local and regional students with an international academic experience that will prepare them to be competitive in a globalized job market. Our upcoming Open House will introduce visitors to our philosophy of excellence in work, research and learning and enable them to interact with key personalities in the CUD community. We are also very pleased to formally launch our new weekend schedules for our Bachelor of Business Administration program, which opens a huge window of opportunity for working undergraduates to complete their studies. For those who find that CUD is the perfect place to help them pursue professional and personal growth, we will also have special offers if they register for any program during the Open House,” said Dr. Muhammed Kabir, Vice President – Academic Affairs, Canadian University of Dubai.
Canadian University of Dubai offers a Canadian-based curriculum that is grounded in the values and cultural sensitivities of the UAE. Understanding that learning takes place inside and outside the classroom, many of CUD’s programs include internships wherein students get to spend an entire semester immersed in practical field work. Students can also choose to continue their education by transferring to one of the university’s partner schools in Canada.
Canadian University of Dubai was established in 2006 and is strategically located in the heart of Dubai’s financial, business and tourist district. Its programs are delivered by Canadian and European faculty and complemented by advanced technologies integrated into the university’s buildings, classrooms, laboratories and electronic facilities. CUD currently serves 1,600 students of over 86 nationalities.
