The American College of Dubai as a pioneer in the field of higher education in Dubai had always earned my respect. However my respect was enhanced after I joined the institution. Since 1990, ACD’s mission was to nurture its students to fill prominent professional posts and it has achieved this goal.


    The College’s Bachelor and Associate degrees and Academic English Program, continue to meet the needs of our diverse constituents. Transfer program, on the other hand, adds another dimension to education in ACD. Plans have been formulated to add other programs/colleges like Pharmacy and Engineering in order to provide Dubai and other communities (Middle and Far East in particular) with highly qualified graduates. ACD has already signed MOUs with reputed companies to secure jobs and internships for its future graduates.


    The student body is our focal point. The qualified and well-trained faculty and administrative staff has demonstrated expertise and commitment to ensure student success. We don’t measure our success by quantity because we believe in quality.  Nevertheless, we are not short of quantity.  After graduation our students remain in touch with ACD through the ACD Student Services Office. Their feedback is highly valued and is helpful for our program development.


    Being part of Al Shafar group of successful companies ACD enjoys the luxury of having outstanding guidance and vision. On top of this, graduates are welcomed to join one of the group’s companies.


    I thank everybody for reading this and all are invited to explore our institution. We are one of the top institutions in UAE in student facilities. You will find an excellent library, superb learning resources, IT labs, sports and recreations facilities as well as areas for informal student interaction.  All students will enjoy the activities they are interested in as our qualified staff members, will always be in the background, working for them.
