The year 2001 was a turning point in the history of the University – recognized then as Dubai University College – when the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research accredited the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computing and Information Systems degree programs. In June 2006, H.H.

This name change indicates the strategic importance assigned to the University by the Ruler of Dubai, and underlines the University’s mandate to promote quality tertiary education in both Dubai and the UAE in general.
