Dubai college wins approval for more courses
Dubai, January 26, 2014
The American College of Dubai said it has won approval from the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to offer finance and marketing courses under its BBA degree program.
The addition of these two areas of study was in response to an increasing trend towards specialization within the various business career paths, said a statement from the college.
On the ministry approval, the college president and CEO William O'Brien said: "The addition of marketing and finance concentrations will serve as a potentially important discriminator for students seeking careers in these particular disciplines. As Dubai is a vibrant marketplace and a hub for the regional financial sector, there is considerable employment scope for graduates with marketing or finance concentration."
The college's enrollment is balanced between recent school leavers as well as working young adults - particularly in its popular evening program, stated O 'Brien.
The American College of Dubai maintains an affordable fee structure which along with its convenient location has resulted in consistent enrollment growth over the past several years, he added.
Founded in 1990, the college is centrally located in Al Garhoud, Dubai, and offers university transfer and BBA programs accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.-TradeArabia News Service
