Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates—20 June 2021: The College of Business (COB) at Abu Dhabi University (ADU) has earned an extension of accreditation for another five years from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). ADU has once again been recognized for improving its business practice through its commitment to strategic management and innovation, student success and impactful thought leadership. 
In recognition of its efforts and commitment to upholding and advancing the quality of their programs, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, the COB at ADU has received international acknowledgment by the world's longest, standing and most recognized accreditations for business programs. It stands amongst 901 business institutions in 58 countries that have earned the AACSB accreditation. It has also been accredited by the European Foundation for Management Development (EQUIS); only 1% of business schools worldwide have earned this double accreditation. In addition, its programs are accredited by the Ministry of Education's Commission for Academic Accreditation in the UAE.

Prof. Barry O'Mahony, Dean of the College of Business at ADU said, “This is a significant achievement for ADU to be placed among an elite group of business schools. My colleagues and I within the College of Business are delighted with the news that the AACSB has reaccredited our college for another five years. We have come a long way over the past few years and we will continue to maintain our focus on providing high quality programs, teaching and research that achieve international standards of excellence and reflect our dedication to student support.” 

AACSB-accredited universities are recognized worldwide for their high-quality degrees and graduates from AACSB-accredited universities are provided with various benefits. These include leading-edge courses and programs that prepare them to become high potential global leaders with the skills needed to build a prosperous future. In addition, students are offered a robust and challenging curriculum and are given access to the finest educational and career opportunities.
COB at ADU seeks to create a learning environment that bridges the gap between business theory and industry practice. Its commitment to its students includes research into the scholarship of teaching and learning that enhances student support programs and allows its students to reach their academic potential. This approach includes collaborating with institutions to provide students the opportunity for a semester exchange in the US, Australia, India, Brazil, France, Ireland, South Korea and the United Kingdom. 

The college currently enrolls over 2000 students within its undergraduate, master's, or doctoral programs, and was the first university to offer a doctoral program in Abu Dhabi. It offers a range of specializations including Finance, Accounting, Tourism and Event Management, Human Resource Management, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Aviation Management and more, and these programs are designed to meet the current and future needs of the workforce.

AACSB International (AACSB); a global nonprofit association, connects educators, students, and business to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great leaders. Synonymous with the highest standards of excellence since 1916, AACSB provides quality assurance, business education intelligence, and learning and development services to over 1,700 member organizations and more than 900 accredited business schools worldwide.
