About us

The American University in Dubai (AUD) is a US and UAE accredited university that offers an American-style education to a culturally diverse learning community. The university offers a range of undergraduate and graduate programs taught by a distinguished international faculty. Located in the heart of Dubai Media City, AUD is at the intersection of innovation, media, and technology.

AUD has launched two exciting new ventures in recent months:

The Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) Program, designed in association with the top-ranked SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University, will equip participants with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive as transformational leaders. In a disruptive environment that requires new ways of thinking and doing, the EMBA will challenge participants to re-think and unlearn so that they are prepared for the future.

The AUD Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center (AEIC) provides a vibrant platform where interdisciplinary entrepreneurs, innovators and researchers can share their knowledge and move their entrepreneurial and innovative ideas from concept to implementation. The Center will provide the mentorship, physical space, administrative, legal and investment sourcing support to assist students in bringing their ideas to fruition.
