Abu Dhabi University
Although young, the University is recognized as a world-class institution committed to excellence in teaching, student experience, research and corporate education. We are regularly featured in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) rankings as among the best higher education institutions in the region. We were the first private higher education institution in the UAE and the GCC region to earn international accreditation from WASC. ADU’s College of Business holds international accreditations from AACSB and EQUIS. Only 1% of business schools worldwide have this double accreditation. In addition, its College of Engineering has earned accreditation from ABET. It houses the only architecture program to hold accreditation by RIBA.
According to the QS World Universities Rankings, ADU ranks in the top 701-750 universities worldwide, the top 150 leading institutions under 50 years, the top 27 universities in the Arab World, and the top 6 in the UAE.
Established in 2003, Abu Dhabi University has around 7,500 students from over 80 nationalities. ADU is structured into Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Engineering, Law and Health Sciences.
