The Dubai campus is an integral part of Middlesex University and is subject to the same rigorous quality assurance procedures that have earned Middlesex the highest possible rating from the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). In particular, the 2009 Institutional Audit report by the QAA, highlighted as ‘good practice’ the meticulous attention given to the establishment, development and integration of the University’s Dubai campus. Middlesex University’s Dubai campus is the first and only UAE campus of a London university that has participated in a QAA institutional audit.

More than 400 successful candidates have graduated with the same undergraduate honours degree in Dubai for which the university’s London campuses are highly reputed. Programmes are offered in business-related disciplines such as Marketing, Management, Accounting, Finance and Human Resource Management, as well as in computing and informatics disciplines such as Information Technology and Business Information Systems. Furthermore, the University is one of only a few universities in the region that offer much sought-after programmes in Psychology, Counselling, International Tourism Management, Hospitality Management and in Media Communications.
In the academic year 2009-10, the Dubai campus has introduced two of the most successful programmes at the University’s home campus in London – the BA (Honours) Development and International Studies and BSc (Honours) Global Social Science. The three-year honours programmes combine the study of developing nations and with the study of global political systems and processes. They will prepare students for careers in international organisations, government departments, NGOs, humanitarian agencies, and policy and research think tanks. 2009 also marks the launch of an innovative and industry-focused undergraduate honours degree in Advertising, Public Relations and Media. These programmes add an even greater variety of opportunities for students looking for a stimulating career and excellent growth prospects.
The Business School offers executive education for experienced professionals with masters degrees in human resource management and in marketing communications. Both programmes have the recognition of the top-most professional bodies in their fields including the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), respectively. Similarly, the newly introduced Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme is offered for practicing managers who seek to develop their strategic, entrepreneurial and consultancy skills in order to progress in an established company or to set up an independent venture. The MBA’s selective and multicultural cohort is given a unique opportunity to gain international exposure by participating in an overseas residential component in Milan or Paris.
